Slow Show

First slow dance in letterpress. Inspired by popular songs

9 June – 21 October 2017

Slow show exhibition

The inaugural exhibition in the newly refurbished Poetry Café is Slow Show. First slow dance in letterpress. Inspired by popular songs by students in the Graphic Design department at Middlesex University.

Second-year Graphic Design students have taken memorable lines from popular songs and transformed them into exciting images, using the centuries-old relief printmaking technique of letterpress. The exhibition presents original one-off prints – ear worms metamorphosed into visual splendour!

A celebratory opening event was held in The Poetry Café on Friday 9 June.
