Roadburn Festival is proud to be teaming up with Burlesque of North America (BRLSQ), and our 2017 curator, John Dyer Baizley to bring festival attendees “Full Bleed”, an exhibition of silkscreened poster art.
The title of the exhibition refers to a common screen printing term, describing a process where silkscreen ink is printed beyond the cut edge of a poster. As a festival that prides itself on taking music and art beyond the expected border, we knew we had to bring this exhibition to Roadburn 2017. BRLSQ is a creative studio and screen printing shop based in Minneapolis, USA, with only five full-time staff, but an immense vision. The roster of artists they collaborate with is rich and diverse, and John Dyer Baizley has been with them for over a decade.
BRLSQ general manager, Jodi Milbert commented: “When John was working on gaining his range of motion back after the bus accident, he was stir crazy, so I invited him to join us (BRLSQ) in Austin TX (US) for SXSW Flatstock in March 2013. The response from fans was amazing, and we had so much fun. He was hooked.”
“This poster exhibition at Roadburn has been something we’ve talked about and wanted to do for years. So this year, when he was asked to curate and wanted to bring the whole team along, there was no question.”
Full Bleed is an exhibition of printed artwork, along with a print sale featuring artists and collaborators connected through the community of heavy music, artistic comraderie, and a shared print shop: BRLSQ of NA. The exhibition will be open every afternoon / evening throughout Roadburn.
