The Get Involved Poster Show

All the posters created during club-night Get Involved’s three year tenure at central London venue, The Social, have been reprinted for a new exhibition at Concrete Hermit…

Regular readers of the CR blog may recall us posting about London club-night Get Involved‘s posters in the past. Each month Get Involved approached a different designer or illustrator to create the poster, meaning the night amassed – over its three year tenure at central London venue The Social – a legacy of lovingly designed promotional materials.

Actually, I’ve got a confession to make – Get Involved, is one of my extra-curricular projects. I couldn’t resist commissioning artists and image makers whose work I admire to create the posters for my little club night and that’s why the artists to get involved (excuse the pun)  include well established image makers such as Anthony Burrill, Build and Jon Burgerman – but also lesser known, up and coming artists such as Roo Walton, Ali Graham and Lazy Oaf.

Now, for the first time, all the Get Involved posters are being reprinted as archival art prints (available to buy in strictly limited editions of 10 at £20 unframed)  at and exhibited at London’s Concrete Hermit Gallery where contributing artist James Joyce and design duo Crispin Finn will be offering limited edition Get Involved prints for sale exclusively through the gallery.

Here are a selection of Get Involved posters from the show:

The above artwork by James Joyce was originally created for a promotional postcard for Get Involved and for the August 2007 event poster. Now, especially for this exhibition, it has been printed at approximately A2 size in a strictly limited edition of 25 numbered and signed Giclée prints.

Crispin Finn’s hand screenprinted poster for the last Get Involved party held at The Social back in December last year was produced in an edition of just 45. Some were given out along with compilation CDs on the night and the remaining posters are being sold at this exhibition. Buyers of the print will receive a free Get Involved compilation CD.

Also being exhibited for the first time is a selection of photographs taken at Get Involved by top rock’n’roll photographer Dean Chalkley:

The Get Involved Poster Show opens tonight and runs until 31 July at Concrete Hermit, 5a Club Row, London, E1 6JX

Opening times: 10am – 6pm Monday – Saturday (except Bank Holidays)
