New exhibition Poster Girls: A Century of Art and Design – 13 October 2017 to January 2018
Girl power comes to Covent Garden when Poster Girls - a major new exhibition about 20th and 21st century female graphic artists opens at London Transport Museum in the autumn of 2017.
Poster Girls will highlight some of the key female artists who have designed for London Transport and Transport for London including Dora Batty, Herry Perry, Laura Knight, Anna Zinkeisen, Margaret Calkin James and Freda Lingstrom. The artists and featured work will be examined and contextualised by both the era in which they lived and worked and their style, looking at influences both from within the design community and from the wider world.
As well as stunning original posters from London Transport Museum’s collection, Poster Girls will include accompanying material such as letters, books and ceramics, photographs and original artworks. The exhibition will look at their diverse portfolios beyond posters and the context in which they were designing posters, the background story to their careers, and, importantly, their influence on 20th century design.
