Now Showing Exhibition

Vallery
Barcelona 08015
Introduction

40 plus creatives were given the task of creating their own interpretation of a Cult, Classic or Obscure film poster from the past, whether it be a literal or abstract solution. The result is Now Showing, an Art exhibition paying homage to more than 70 years of film, through the form of Prints, One Off Screen Prints and Sculptures.

Contributors were given the choice of working alone or in pairs; There was no colour, language or font restrictions.

This project certainly wasn’t about redesigning “bad” film posters; that was far from its objective; Most contributors taking part picked films that already had beautifully executed solutions; Having said that, there is never just one solution to a creative brief, as some of the classic films proved.

Venue

Vallery is the Gallery Shop of Vasava. Located in the Barcelona’s city center, It features exhibitions by outstanding artists, graphic designers and illustrators.

Introduction

Two Faced is a creative showcase of modern-day portraiture from some of the most talented and influential creative people of the last decade.

The book presents over 100 unique portraits produced exclusively for this project by the likes of Kinsey, David Shrigley, Trevor Jackson, Joshua Davis, Rankin, Hillman Curtis, Build, Mi-Zo, Jonathan Ellery and many more.

Our face is our signature: something that is indelibly us. Yet faces are paradoxical and we can easily misread them. Two Faced, put together by WIWP and published by IdNPRO, represents a fascinating insight into the minds and worlds of those who have attempted to deal with this most enigmatic of artistic challenges.

Remixed Exhibition
29.09.2005
29.10.2005
Phonica
London W1F 7LZ
Introduction

We asked 33 artists to take an old 12′ vinyl record, which was personal to them and decorate it with whatever they wanted. The artist would work directly on the surface of the vinyl using Pens, Paint, Stickers and Stencils etc. The theme was open and the space was to be used as imaginatively as possible. The vinyl was the central and most important piece in the exhibition, but in addition to that, the sleeve and cover could also be customised to complete the set.

Remixed London, put together by WIWP, Fact and hosted at the Phonica Record store, showcased all 33 submissions and included a DJ Set by Its Bigger Than.

Venue

The Vinyl Factory is an independent British company that collaborates with musicians and artists to create ultra-premium handmade limited editions and accompanying exhibitions

Unplugged Exhibition

JaguarShoes
London E2 8DA
Introduction

Expanding on our original concept of limited edition handdrawn pin-badges, we devised theUnplugged project. Select artists were asked to take an A4 sheet of people and fill it with whatever they liked (the theme was open). A high quality copy was made and WIWP choose 3 to 5 areas to turn into unique pin badges, therefore creating mini artist collectables.

Unplugged London, put together by WIWP, No-One and hosted at JaguarShoes in Shoreditch, showcased all the framed originals and accompanying one off pin badges, along with other badge related paraphernalia and full scale wall murals by Sickboy, Yuck and Jon Burgerman.

Venue

The original East London Arts collective, JSC create beautiful and unique exhibitions, events, publications. The organisation was born out of much celebrated Shoreditch bar and exhibition space DreamBagsJaguarShoes in London in 2002.
