Kansas City Design Week wants to do a gigposter show and NEEDS your input!
You probably don't remember me but I used to stalk these boards regularly. Then a life-crippling addiction to Facebook and Twitter took over and now I just creep on occasion.
Since leaving these fair lands I've become the Director of Kansas City Design Week, a week-long celebration of design that last year included Ellen Lupton, Hatch Show Print, and Jeremy Madl. It was rad.
This year I want to do a gigposters show and preferably a gigposters sale. As part of it we'd also screen Died Young Stayed Pretty.
The question is, how would you want sales handled? I'd love for the show part to be more of a gallery-style show in a rock venue with a DJ. Not a multiple-booth Flatstock style event. So, would you want to send a few posters, have some sold at a merch booth and have the agreed on profits paypal-ed back to you? Not sell anything at all and just show your work? I fear the book=keeping involved in tracking sales for possibly as many as 40 artists.
Thanks guys! I was just reading about Just Like Being There just now—I'll contact them.
Would you guys want the unsold shipped back? Is it fair to say that shit can't happen—or take money out of a dude's profits to do it? Honestly—just want to be fair and cool with everyone by knowing what expectations would be up-front.
Yeah, I haven't decided yet if sales should/would partly benefit KCDW or not. This is all great feedback though and I think with that I can start booking the movie, DJ, space and begin a call for artists.
my favorite part about Died Young Stayed Pretty is that its so nonsensical and incoherent it actually loops itself all the way back around to being almost Warhol'ian cinema, thus it is unintentionally outsider meta art about an almost related artform.
