Over the years, fans of rock-poster artist Emek have unwittingly enjoyed a slow-motion retrospective of the artist’s work—albeit one year’s worth at a time—every time they visited the artist’s spacious booth at the Festival of Rock Posters in Golden Gate Park. But from February 24 though the end of April, 2018, time will stand still when the Haight Street Art Center presents a retrospective of Emek’s work titled “Artifacts.” With roughly 200 pieces expected to be on view, this is a rare chance to see many of the artist’s most beloved pieces in one place. Join the throngs expected for the opening on February 24, from 6 to 8 p.m., or visit any time, Wednesdays through Sundays, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free.
UPDATE: No surprise, the show is great (some cellphone snapshots below). Don’t miss it! And be sure to attend a conversation with the artist on Tuesday, February 27. Info here.
