delhi: morning show

sunil vysyaprath is creative director at wieden+kennedy in delhi, and has been collecting a specific kind of movie poster when a friend of his sent him a stack almost a decade ago. while traditional bollywood posters have become collectible cult design objects across the planet, there's a particular type of movie poster that is largely ignored, and that has an aesthetic of its own: the adult movie poster. as an underground design form, these posters address indian culture's forbidden fantasies, bringing them to life through often bizarre titles and explicit visuals. currently on at w+k exp gallery is morning show, an exhibition of 30 of vysyaprath's posters, dating from the 1980s and 1990s [on through sep 17]. location: b10 triveni complex, sheikh sarai phase 1 [malviya nagar].
