Flatstock 57

We’re happy to announce that Flatstock, the poster show series presented by the American Poster Institute (API), will come to Raleigh for the first time during the 2016 Hopscotch Music and Design Festivals.

Flatstock is an ongoing series of exhibitions featuring the work of many of the most popular concert poster artists working today. It makes annual stops at Barcelona’s Primavera Sound, Austin’s SXSW, Chicago’s Pitchfork Fest and select locations.

The API is a nonprofit corporation dedicated to serving poster artists and promoting the art form. Both the API and its Flatstock series were organized in 2002 as a result of conversations between interested artists and supporters frequenting the popular web site GigPosters.com. The best concert posters have always captured both the essence of the music they promoted and the spirit of the time in which they were produced. This is as true today as it was in San Francisco during the Sixties.

The Flatstock shows provide the general public with a series of opportunities to see fine poster art in person and to meet the artists who’ve created it. They provide the API with a way to present the poster artists collectively while showcasing the breadth of individual styles they represent.

Flatstock is open to everyone, even if you’re not attending Hopscotch.

Location: Main lobby of the Raleigh Convention Center, 500 S. Salisbury St., Raleigh, NC 27601

Hours:

  • Thursday, September 8th……12 PM – 6 PM
  • Friday, September 9th………..10 AM – 6 PM
  • Saturday, September 10th…..10 AM – 6 PM
