MONTCLAIR FILM FESTIVAL @ MAM

 

Changing the Face of Modern Movie Posters
Installation at MAM
WHEN: May 2 – 6
WHERE:
Montclair Art Museum, Bloomfield Avenue & Mountain Avenue, Montclair

The collection on view represents a revival of the craft of film poster art. Before 1987, it was the norm for noted artists like Saul Bass, Reynold Brown, Bob Peak and Richard Amsel to create arresting images to market a film with lithographic posters; this contrasts greatly with today's familiar lightbox posters, often using a star's face, rather than art, to sell a film. Of the approximately 20 works presented, the artists represented include Martin Ansin, Kevin Tong, Tyler Stout, Billy Perkins, Jeff Kleinsmith, Todd Slater, Jesse Phillips, Joshua Budick and Ken Taylor.
