The show features work by Mancunian artist Edward Barton and ‘infamous balladeer’ Norman Clayture as well as comedian Harry Hill’s proposal To recreate George Cruikshank’s the worship of Bacchus using known alcoholics, as realised by six illustrators (which sounds intriguing to say the least).
Design by Day say their work for the show features “a sinister mix of fame caricatures and freakish body parts … We took inspiration from the artists and work to develop the identity for the exhibition, and produced a typographic side-show exposing the austere dark reality of getting caught up in the carousel journey of fame.”
As well as the posters, there is a trailer for the show which will run on the Cornerhouse’s cinema screens and online
Design by Day also worked on the Cornerhouse’s previous show on Artists & Cinema, Unspooling.
