The Oscars Movie Poster Series by Gallery 1988 and Nine Artists

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences and Gallery1988 commissioned a small group of young international artists to create original screen prints inspired by this year’s nine Best Picture nominees. Oh boy there are some good ones

 The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and Gallery1988 will present “For Your Consideration,” their first collaborative exhibition featuring art inspired by the 2012 Best Picture Oscar® nominees, on display February 14 through 17 at Gallery1988 Melrose in Los Angeles.

“Working hand-in-hand with the Academy has been a dream come true for Gallery1988 and its artists,” said Jensen Karp, co-owner and co-curator of Gallery1988. “So much inspiration has come from past Oscar telecasts as well as the amazing range of films that have been nominated this year. It was a perfect fit for our style of artwork and treatment, and we can't wait to show everyone the results of some of our most creative contemporary minds."

 These screen prints are not available for purchase; however, fans will have several opportunities to obtain limited edition posters. On each day of “For Your Consideration,” Gallery1988 will give away free posters to the first 100 people who visit the gallery at a specified time. For information on when each film poster will be distributed, visit or follow Gallery1988 on Twitter (@galleries1988) and Facebook (gallery1988). Fans outside the Los Angeles area can find out about poster giveaway opportunities by following the Academy on Twitter (@TheAcademy) and Facebook (TheAcademy).

“For Your Consideration” also features 12 illustrations of memorable Oscar moments by Oliver Barrett, a light installation by Julie B (Pretty in Plastic), and other Oscar-inspired work by artists Olly Moss, Nan Lawson and DabsMyla.
