Presenting Shakespeare: Posters from Around the World

Exhibition Website

Oct 14 2016 - Dec 11 2016

In compiling the first-ever curated collection of international Shakespearean theatrical posters, Mirko Ilic and Steven Heller assembled around 1,500 examples. Their 2015 book, Presenting Shakespeare, includes 1,100 “historically significant, aesthetically desirable, and conceptually intelligent [posters] produced over nearly two centuries, in many countries and by varied artist, designers and illustrators.”

Presenting Shakespeare: Posters from Around the World is a selection of these posters, chosen to accompany the Wisconsin showing of the Folger Library’s First Folio: The Book That Gave Us Shakespeare at the Chazen.
