The Art of Speed

The Hospital Club , Covent Garden Friday May 24 2013 11:00 - 18:00
Definitely one for petrolheads with a graphic design bent but without the necessary funds to be at Monaco's Grand Prix. Taking place over the same weekend, this ace-sounding weekend exhibition and sale features all of the 1930s, '40s and '50s official Monaco Grand Prix posters, as well as some later originals, all being shown alongside the very rare 1956 Maserati 250F chassis 2521. The posters reflect the art trends of their time and as such offer a fascinating look at the way movements such as Vorticism and modernism impacted on their design, which in turn helped shape the race into one of the most chic Grand Prix events in the world.
