This year sees the return of The Art of Reggae Exhibition – a successful collaboration between Positive Vibration and the International Reggae Poster Contest.
The exhibition, which supports the Alpha Boys School in Kingston, Jamaica, will showcase 100 reggae-inspired posters designed by illustrators + artists from all over the world, including Jamaica, Iran, Ghana, Brazil, Russia, the U.S, China, the UK and beyond.
As well as raising funds for the Alpha Boys School, the exhibition raises awareness of the fantastic work the school does. Set up in 1880 by the Sisters of Mercy, the school provides education and musical tuition to underprivileged youths in Kingston, Jamaica. Without it, we may not have reggae music, given the fact that its alumni includes The Skatalites, Rico Rodriguez, Desmond Dekker, Leroy ‘Horsemouth’ Wallace and Yellowman, amongst many other great musicians.
The exhibition will run from 28 May – 11 June at Kuumba Imani Millennium Centre, then on 12 + 13 June at Camp + Furnace, where it will be part of this year’s Positive Vibration – Festival of Reggae.
To celebrate the return of the exhibition, Positive Vibration will be hosting a launch party at Kuumba Imani Millennium Centre, 4 Princes Rd, Liverpool L8 1TH on Thursday 28 May.
Taking place between 7pm – 11pm, there will be music, food and performance in addition to the fantastic artwork.
