London’s Movie Poster Art Gallery is pleased to announce a fascinating music poster exhibition entitled The Manchester Connection – a celebration of Manchester’s legendary renaissance in music and design. The exhibition highlights some of the great designs Factory Records commissioned from Peter Saville, Central Station Design, Ben Kelly and 8vo, along with the equally inspired design concepts of Morrissey for The Smiths on Rough Trade, and from the Stone Roses’ guitarist John Squire for Silvertone Records.
Exhibition highlights include:
RARE ORIGINAL POSTERS: The Smiths, New Order, A Certain Ratio, The Stone Roses, The Haçienda, and the rare original poster for Joy Division’s debut album “Unknown Pleasures.”
RARE SLEEVE PROOFS: The Smiths, A Certain Ratio, New Order, and a unique Morrissey hand-annotated sleeve proof for his album “Your Arsenal.”
RARE ORIGINAL ARTEFACTS: the original FAC51 embosser used at the HAÇIENDA, the original “Gay Traitor” bar menu poster from the HAÇIENDA.
The exhibition runs from 12-25 November (not Sundays) Mon-Fri 11-6pm, Sat 11-4pm.
