“The Machines Are Winning: A Tribute To Sidney Lumet” Show In Denver This Weekend

I don’t normally rush to post these movie-themed exhibitions that are popping up all over the country lately, but this one is actually paying tribute to a hugely underrated director, plus it’s been wonderfully curated by Jay Shaw with many up-and-coming, largely unknown artists. Sometimes people get it right. “The Machines Are Winning: A Tribute To Sidney Lumet” opens Friday, September 9th at 7pm. The spot is Laundry on Lawrence at 2701 Lawrence in Denver. The leftover prints will be sold online the next day at Kingdom of Nonsense.

  1. Great work.

  2. Mitch thanks so much for featuring the show and for the kind words! I’m very lucky to get to put this series together. The talent on display is really something else.
    After Friday I think I’m going to sleep for a week :)

  3. Wow, looks SICK!!! See yaaaal there!

  4. The Network poster is dope.

  5. Great work IJ! You’re really burning up, man!

  6. Wow, these are beautiful!

  7. Some amazing posters here, some of the artists I haven’t heard of before – will definitely check out their other work!

    Nice job IJ!

  8. Awesome stuff!

  9. I love the modern typography treatments that contrasts with the painting style of the Jaw Shaw and James Martin posters. On the James Rheem Davis poster why is there Chinese(?) characters in the lower right corner. Is it from a scene in the movie or just decorative? It’s been a while since i saw the movie.

  10. I’m a bit baffled by the Japanese text on the Davis poster too, but other than that it’s the best of the bunch.

    The other Dog Day poster, however? Is that supposed be Pacino?

  11. Jay has done an amazing job putting this together and busted his ass x1000. I’m looking forward to seeing it all up in person.

  12. I love the “Deathtrap” image. Too bad that film isn’t available on DVD in anything but fullscreen…

  13. I had no idea until this weekend that Jay was located in Denver. I was super excited when I figured out that he did. I am posting this to my blog at Changethethought this week and telling everyone I know. I am excited to meet Jay, hopefully collaborate with him in the future and throw my support behind him. Can’t wait to attend this show and I am so excited it is here in Denver.

  14. These are cool. What is the last one? I like the print but don’t know what film it’s for..

  15. That Deathtrap is incredible. RIP Christopher Reeve

  16. @Bollo: That one is for Fail-Safe. Imagine a serious “Dr. Strangelove” starring Henry Fonda and Walter Matthau. Excellent film.

    @Rob Jones: couldn’t agree more. Jacob nailed it. I was so stoked he picked that film. I hope the poster gets some people to seek it out. In my opinion it was Reeve’s best roll.

  17. For those of us that can’t make it, how can one purchase one of these awesome posters?

  18. @Dean: whatever is left over after the show will be available for sale on Saturday, September 10th (around noon) at http://kingdomofnonsense.bigcartel.com/
