A Celebration of August (London, UK)

A Celebration of August

London Design Festival 2010

23rd September – 27th September

CIty Arts and Music Project

Returning for its third year, Mortar&Pestle invite thirty-one emerging Artists and Designers to produce their own interpretation of a day in August as part of the London Design Festival 2010.

‘A Celebration’ is an exhibition that offers an identity to every single day of the month, producing a poster collective that displays a unique insight into the period of August.

Exhibitors are assigned a date of the month and asked to design a poster about that specific day. The exhibition covers a variety of creative disciplines and mediums providing a range of personalised approaches.

In a design industry heavily dependent on digital printing processes each exhibitor has been asked to craft their poster using more traditional printing methods like screenprinting, letterpress and embossing.

The exhibitors:

Akacorleone, Bill Porter, Birch Studio, André Ljosaj, Lucy Brown, Thibaud Herem, Matt Kerrs, Peter Robertson, Paul Jenkins, Andre Beato, Eleanor Sugget, Nina Reisinger, Luke Archer, David Marsh, Mat Williams, Tom Lovell, Varvara Zaytseva, Strive for Happiness, Evelin Kasikov, Ghazaal Vojdani, James Dawe, Laura Yates, Loligo, Fraser Lyness, Scott Joseph, Francisco Freitas, Pedro Meade, Anna-Luise Lorenz, Stefano Conzatti & Christina Helfenstein, Cian O’Sullivan, Joep Jacobs

Private View: 23rd Thursday September, 7pm-Late
