For twenty five years, Burlington’s Iskra Print Collective in collaboration with JDK, now Solidarity of Unbridled Labour, has been hard at work slinging ink and putting art on paper to produce a collection of hundreds of silkscreen posters for shows at local live music venue Higher Ground – evoking the spirit of each band with bold creativity and providing concert goers with the unique experience of a free commemorative poster at the end of a show.
ECHO: A Survey at 25 Years of Sounds, Art and Ink on Paper presents a wide swath of these posters, collectively on display for the first time ever. Accompanying the exhibition and for sale is a newly printed, stunning, high-quality 280 page book filled with all 367 poster designs, ephemera, and anecdotes from the past quarter century. During the book release party, Iskra will be open for a free workshop–join us in learning how these posters are screenprinted and make a print of your own.
The exhibition opening, print workshop, and book release party are being held at the Karma Bird House on Saturday, April 1 from 6:00-9:00pm.
