Join artist Jay Ryan and musician Steve Albini in conversation with Northwestern University Archivist Kevin Leonard for a look at music poster production today. They’ll highlight the steps involved in poster creation, from the initial discussion with the musician client through the screen printing process, while also shedding light on the evolution of the industry over time—what has changed and what remains the same.
This program is presented by Chicago Collections Consortium as part of Art Design Chicago Now, a series of public programs and digital storytelling that amplifies the voices of Chicago’s diverse artists and designers, past and present, and explores the essential role they play in shaping the now, in the city and beyond.. It is preceded on November 10 by a panel discussion on Chicago’s music poster history.
