Plakaten swinger – Udstilling (DK)
Festival posters tell jazz history
Danish Poster Museum marks the history of Jazz in Aarhus through 100 years with a mini exhibition with some of Aarhus Jazz Festival's official posters from the period 1989-2019.
Several among them have received international awards, e.g., three years in a row in the early 00s at the International Live Music Conference in London.
The small mini exhibition clearly shows that the first choice has often been poster designer Finn Nygaard, whose posters show his love for the masters of jazz.
He has often used the late photographer Jan Persson's jazz photos as a template for his posters.
The pop-up exhibition Plakaten swinger is shown from June 20 to August 12, 2019, on the 1st balcony of the Danish Poster Museum.
