Text based or image led, the core unifying factor is that all artists have created a work that is rooted in the idea of a poster. This dynamic exhibition includes photography, painting, print, collage and drawing; exploring our willingness to conform and belong to a community, whilst at the same time expressing a desire to strike out and assert our identity. Crucially, there is no overt or deliberate shared intent or theme, other than the artists uniting around the ethos of a poster; a powerful tool of mass communication. The collective works will function as a group that sits somewhere between a communicative role and the symbolic; allowing an engagement with the individual existing within a community. The forty works will have come from each artists’ particular journey but together will reflect the rousing nature of the poster and the calling to peoples to take part in an event which may be fleeting but captures the spirit of the time.


As part of BALTIC Self-Publishing Artists' Market 2018 the Women Artists of the North East Library had a one-day residency in BALTIC Library, researching the collection for records of exhibitions and projects by women artists associated with the North East. The documents found were pulled out of the collections to form a new online reading list of BALTIC Library. This also contributed to the Women Artists North East Library’s research.

This book now forms part of that reading list and contains the work of Sophie Lisa Beresford and Katie Cuddon.
