Geeked about Art

This event has finished Took place on: Wednesday, 23rd Jan 2013

GEEKED is an illustration-led quarterly magazine with an urban feminist slant on art, culture and gender; the first ever issue, 'Moran Mania', launched in November. The premier issue was such a success that all print copies were snapped up within the first week of distribution.

The popularity of the magazine was not only due to engaging articles but also due, in large part, to the stunning artwork of some exciting new artists and illustrators. As a celebration of these talents, GEEKED Magazine and The Gallery at Foyles have collaborated to host a unique exhibition which features the work of these up-and-comers. Come by during the month of January and get GEEKED about art!
