Pick Me Up

This time round Crowd will be discussing why Graphic Design and Illustration is increasingly being exhibited in gallery spaces. How do events like Pick Me Up affect the public perception of Graphic Arts? 

How has the prolific rise of blogs and online exhibition spaces changed our relationship with physical artwork? As shows increasingly opt for events and workshops, does this signal a more outward looking practice, or a response to the shortcomings of digital media?

On the panel:
— Claire Catterall, founder of Pick Me Up
— John Walters, editor of Eye Magazine
— Tess Redburn & David Biskup, Puck Collective
— Anthony Burrill, Graphic Artist, Print Maker and Designer
— Darryl Clifton, Design Programme Director at Camberwell College of Arts
— Ed Cheverton, Illustrator
— Charlie Hood, Beach Gallery

Everything is on sale at PMU. How does this change the viewer or visitors's perception of what's on show? #ctpmu

Why do people come to see the work @pickmeuplondon if you can see it all online? #ctpm

Pick me up is about networking and getting together with friends or people you know solely from the internet #ctpmu
