Highlighting under the radar arts and culture in Birmingham, UK

Don’t Let Them Destroy Another British Industry

You may have noticed the above poster around Birmingham. Eastside Projects has commissioned 2006 Turner Prize nominee Mark Titchner to design the poster for the Save the Arts Campaign. This weekend they will be promoting Birmingham and national arts by handing out similar flyers at the prestigious Frieze Art Fair.

Apparently the posters will be visible on a quarter of all available official city poster sites across Birmingham until 26 October. 25 000 flyers will be handed out at Frieze. Titchner’s second work, Cut Us, Don’t Kill Us can currently be seen on the front façade of Eastside Projects on Heath Mill Lane, Digbeth.

You can sign the Save the Arts petition here.

Incidentally, Eastside Projects has an opening of a group exhibition, Ultra High Temperature,  tonight from 6-8pm. Gene-George Earle, Joanne Masding and Rebecca Bibby, all young Birmingham-based artists will present work. More information can be found on here.
