Following its debut at Bumbershoot, “Art of Modern Rock: The Poster Explosion” opened at EMP Museum in Seattle in May, 2006.

The show focuses on the recent renaissance in poster-making. The story is told through thematic sections and integrated a/v projections throughout the exhibit space. Gabe Kean led the development of the a/v projects including a short documentary video loop about the artists, their style, their scene, and the recent explosion.

“Poster engines” were developed to show the size and diversity of the movement. Two different engines dynamically display 40,000 posters while another demonstrates silkscreen image compositing.
