Packing a visual punch designed to lure filmgoers in through cinema doors, the posters created to advertise films have acquired a cult cachet that has made them collectors' items since the very beginning of cinematography.
Bringing together the original bills created for 60 famous films, from Hitchcock's Vertigo to Kill Bill and Delicatessen, the exhibition 'Arte e Cinema Pelos Pôsteres' ('Art and Cinema through Posters'), also features a further 60 remixed posters – new interpretations of the originals created by 20 Brazilian artists, working in techniques as diverse as digital design (Dani Hasse), screenprinting (Alex Senna), and old-fashioned pen-and-ink (Nazareno).
