The Poster House Museum will reopen in two weeks with four distinct exhibitions, all opening on September 2nd. Let’s take a look at what will be on view.
For all who remember the opening of the ‘new’ Lincoln Center complex in 1962, you might remember the Vera List posters. This exhibition focuses on her contribution to the creation of a poster program advertising the grand complex.
Vera List & The Posters of Lincoln Center will be on view from September 2, 2021 to October 3, 2021.
LeRoy Neiman designed posters announcing boxing matches, marathons, automobile races, golf tournaments, tennis championships, football games, and five Olympics, and well as some of the most established jazz festivals in the U.S.
What’s The Score? The Posters of LeRoy Neiman will be on view from September 2, 2021 to March 27, 2022.
Founded by Seymour Chwast, Reynold Ruffins, and Edward Sorel—and soon joined by Milton Glaser—Push Pin served as a counterpoint to the slick ads being created on Madison Avenue and the rigid, grid-based designs popular in Europe. They were referential, drawing from troves of disparate and often forgotten tropes from past art movements and time periods, hurtling them into the new, playful visual language of the 1960s and beyond.
The Push Pin Legacy will be on view from September 2, 2021 to February 6, 2022.
For years, the term “Blaxploitation” has been used derisively to dismiss or caricature a bygone era of low-budget Black cinema—but it was and is so much more as we will see in the exhibition, You Won’t Bleed Me: How Blaxploitation Posters Defined Cool & Delivered Profits, on view from September 2, 2021 to February 6, 2022.
The Poster House Museum is located at 119 West 23rd Street, NYC.
