Print Club London invites talented artists and illustrators to create alternative, screen-printed posters for the films shown at Film4 Summer Screen.
Each exhibiting artist reimagines a poster for one of the films, taking particular scenes, quotes, characters or other elements as inspiration.
Open every day and each evening, prior to the screenings, Summer Screen Prints will host a varied programme of events, demonstrations and workshops to accompany the exhibition in the new, larger space in the East Wing at Somerset House. Each of the posters will be part of a limited-edition, signed and numbered by the artist, and exclusively available to purchase on site or from the Print Club London website.
