Open Call for Screenadelica: Printing the Art of Pop

  • 14 March 2013 - 26 May 2013

To kick off activities for the upcoming exhibition The Art of Pop Video (opening 14 March) FACT and Screenadelica are presenting a four-day exhibition complete with workshops, demonstrations and a DIY screen-printing studio built straight into the FACT Connects Space, and we want your poster designs!

The Open Call has now finished. Check out Screenadelica: Printing The Art of Pop, on The Wall to see which posters have been selected.

Inspired by FACT's next show, The Art of Pop Video, illustrator and founder of Screenadelica, Gary McGarvey -along with some of Liverpool's best artists- will take over the FACT Connects Space in the foyer from 28 February - 3 March (12 - 6pm) to demonstrate DIY screen-printing, hold drop-in workshops for the public, and build up the exhibition using crowd-sourced designs submitted by Liverpool artists.


Screenadelica is a hugely successful music-inspired poster exhibition that in the past year has toured and exhibited across England, Europe and beyond. It's a 'pop up' gallery celebrating the art of the screen-printed poster. Exhibiting the work of leading UK and international artists from the music poster 'scene', the show includes a wide variety of styles promoting bands that the artists love; inspired by the music they hear.


Any artists or designers based in the North West can submit a music-inspired poster design which should work well as a one-colour print, with well-spaced, thick lines. In keeping with The Art of Pop Video, and Screenadelica, your design should be music related.

The last date for submissions is 25 February 2013.  Please email a digital version of your design, attached as a PDF to

The Prize

The best designs will be chosen by FACT and Screenadelica and these will then be printed by highly skilled artists and technicians in the space, who will assist both artists and visitors alike in learning how to print their own posters. Your pieces will then be placed into the exhibition, alongside the Screenadelica posters, and you can take a copy away with you, as soon as it's dry.

FACT Connects

This pop-up exhibition is part of the dynamic, multi-platform FACT Connects Programme which strives to connect FACT with local artists, musicians, makers and technicians, and exhibit the outcomes of the creative projects that our engagement team facilitate within the community.
