2,500 Nights

RICHARD SPEER
Wednesday April 24
Backspace
115 NW 5th Ave.
 
This poster-art show is a mixed bag. On one hand, there are plenty of individual posters that prove just how valuable and sophisticated this utilitarian art form can be. On the other hand, when viewed en masse, the posters blend into a heterogeneous blur. Instances of witty graphic design get lost on the salon-style wall, their impact diluted by too many other examples of insipid graphic tropes that make the posters seem disposable. Through April 30.
