The event is a celebration of "DARK NOUVEAU,"* a return to the roots of poster creation. DARK NOUVEAU evokes equally the fin de siècle style of Toulouse-Lautrec and 1960's San Francisco Psychedelia - and operates here as a manifesto of reinvention and revision - aimed at connecting to the poster movement of the Decadent Period to the Belle Epoque and folding it into the Psychedelic Period to the present modern global silkscreen movement.
