Hello Designers/Printers,

I am writing to invite you to the open call for participation in Bushwick Print Lab’s next exhibition, “Poster Child: screenprinted rock & roll gig posters”.
This exhibition will feature beautifully designed posters for rock shows and will be on view from September 6th - October 11th, 2013. The opening reception will take place on Friday, Sept 6th from 7PM-10PM.

We are looking for a broad survey of work and are limiting submissions to one piece from each studio. Although we would prefer posters that are silkscreen prints, we will consider accepting other methods of printing or original artwork as long as it is a great design! (sorry, no b+w photocopies) We are looking to showcase the rich variety of art that is made to promote live music. The work will be displayed on the wall space at Bushwick Print Lab and BPL staff will put you in contact with visitors who are interested in purchasing a piece.

The opening reception will take place Friday, Sept 6th from 7PM-10PM at Bushwick Print Lab. The exhibition will be will be on view from Sept 6th till October 11th, 2013.

Although this is an open call show, your work must be approved by Bushwick Print Lab. Please do not drop off your work without BPL’s prior approval of the submission. Accepted submissions may be used by Bushwick Print Lab for promotional purposes for the Poster Child Exhibition.

Please note that we will take care of your artwork in every way possible. However, we are an active studio workspace and we cannot be responsible for any loss or damage as a result of your piece being displayed as part of the show.
