Kathy Grayson's POSTERMAT Show

As part of the Dazed Live festival this Saturday 9th April, New York will come to London in the form of the Kathy Grayson curated art exhibition POSTERMAT. Protein will be hosting the show at their 18 Hewett Street warehouse space which will be filled with works by artists including Yoko Ono, Barry McGee, Bruce LaBruce, Harmony Korine, Aurel Schmidt and Assume Vivid Focus.

For those of you not familiar with the project it was initially set up in the 104 Green Street space in New York and featured limited edition posters from artists both infamous and new to the scene - all curated by The Hole, Kathy Grayson’s art outfit with Meghan Coleman.

The two former directors at the legendary and now-closed Deitch Projects got the idea for POSTERMAT from A-Ron Bondaroff, who frequented Postermat (a shop on E 8th St in the Village where kids in the 80s/90s got the best punk, indie, whatever-cool posters) and enlisted his help to get the right feel for the show.

To attend/view the exhibition you need to buy a £27.50 Dazed Live ticket which also gives you access to lots of other great music and art events happening through out the  day in various East London venues, which is cool if you are planning to attend Dazed Live. But if like us at Hookedblog you just wanted to see this exhibition it kinda sucks.

It looks like the exhibition is running until the 23rd April so if you were not at the Dazed Live event you can still go see it.
