A rare chance to see a remarkable collection of film and theatre posters from 1970s-90s. The collection was started in 1973 by George Marks who was in Poland on a British Council Scholarship studying poster design under Henryk Tomaszewski at the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts.
The rise of the so-called ‘Polish School’ of posters, following the end of WWII, can be attributed to several historical and cultural influences which were unique to the socio-political issues which dominated Poland during the post-war decades. Take part in poetry and printmaking workshops during the exhibition: We have a Saturday morning option of a creative writing and poetry workshop with Bohdan Piasecki and an afternoon print workshop to design your own poster with Holly O’Meara. There is also a Tuesday evening option across two weeks.
