PosterSpy Community Event (NOV 26th-28th 2021) Book your FREE Tickets!

The PosterSpy Community Art Show. From November 26th to November 28th we’ll be holding a weekend of industry talks, Q&A’s and of course, a free to access gallery showcasing some amazing work from the PosterSpy community & beyond. Social distancing will be recommended throughout the entire weekend and a hand sanitiser station will be active for guests.

Please note: For general admission, a physical ticket is not required and walk-ins are welcome. However in order for us to remain safe and minimise large numbers we are recommending you order the FREE tickets for the days you want to come at the bottom of this page so we have an idea of guest numbers.

This will also help with catering for the opening night so we order enough food!

Due to the way we will set up the gallery, guests can arrive and explore the art without disturbing the talks. So if you want to come for the art only you can!

 

Dates: 26th-28th November 2021

Venue: Gallery Different, 14 Percy St, London W1T 1DR

Walk-ins are welcome all weekend.

The Most Amazing Destination  – Exhibited all weekend

Over the weekend we’ll be exhibiting 10 submissions from our ‘The Most Amazing Destination’ art challenge, which you can still submit to now! The idea was for artists to create travel style posters for the one place they would go to after travel lockdowns and bans. The place can be real or fictional, opening up lots of possibilities for artists.
