Description

Posters are the backdrop to our daily lives and travels. Ephemeral by nature, they are glanced at and often forgotten, plastered over in our memory as they are on the walls. As art, though posters have a unique immediacy. They reflect the trends of the time and reveal subtle shifts in style and design. They act as barometers of cultural relevance and can offer real-time social commentary and political satire. "Plastered" leads us on a chronological journey through popular music poster art - the jazz, rock and roll, pop and punk scenes in Australia. Over five hundred posters from the past five decades are reproduced and Roger Butler from the National Gallery of Australia tells us where poster art sits in the world of fine art. Murray Walding evokes the stories of the artists, promoters and performers that surround these posters.show more
