Le Guess Who? 2018 Program Guide

Page 158

EDUcATIONAL PROJEcTS This year, Le Guess Who? collaborates with Corderius College (Amersfoort) and X11 school for media and design (Utrecht) in an educational project. Pupils were asked to choose one of the artists from this year’s line-up, and explore their background and inspiration. Based on this, they created a new visual image or product for the artist. The results are shown in an exhibition that can be seen daily during the festival in TivoliVredenburg. The works are exhibited on the fourth floor. Ahead of the festival, we also collaborated with a primary school in Utrecht for Lombok Festival: de Parkschool. Those pupils dove into music from the Middle-East and NorthAfrica and discussed the differences they recognized in the music they listened to. The pupils translated those conversations into self-made lanterns, that will be used to decorate the food market of Lombok Festival.

LE GIG POSTER For the sixth year during Le Guess Who?, we host an exhibition in TivoliVredenburg with silkscreen posters that are designed especially for the festival. Utrecht poster hero Joris Diks (Handprinted Stuff ) organizes Le Gig Poster? with posters of the festival artists by dozens of national and international artists. All these posters are original contemporary pieces of art, created in collaboration with the musicians and venues they depict. Most of them are for sale, so grab this unique chance to get a signed limited edition silkscreen of your favorite band or artist. Le Gig Poster? is open daily throughout the festival on the fifth floor of TivoliVredenburg. For more info, visit legigposter.com.
