Nashville in London, Hatch Show Print Exhibit at Chelsea Space, Closes December 14

Fans of Vintage Posters (and more recent ones) who might also like country music and happen to be in London this week will want to check Hatch Show Print Exhibit at Chelsea Space between now and Saturday as the show closes on Saturday, December 14, 2013.

"CHELSEA space presents the very first UK exhibition dedicated to the American letterpress art of Hatch Show Print based in Nashville, Tennessee. This exhibition will represent a rare opportunity to view archive material and stunning posters from one of the world's greatest producers of letterpress design and explores the importance of the art of the poster in the history of communication.


Originally established in 1879, in a world before TV advertising and the internet, Hatch Show Print used strong design to convey information to the widest possible audience – a visual ‘shout’ across the American landscape.

Hatch Show Print is owned and operated by the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum."

Besides country music artists, Hatch Show Print created posters for Elvis Presley, Neil Young, Bessie Smith, Duke Ellington and Aretha Franklin to name a few.

Event is FREE
