Posters of the “non-events” of 2020 by Lydia Leith

Emanuele D'Angelo

“Not soon. Not today. No day. No booking necessary. Never.”

It’s a different year than usual, we know, almost all events, exhibitions, conferences have been cancelled.
So the British artist Lydia Leith has decided to create a series of “non-events”, recalling this unusual year as that of closures, cancellations.

“Usually over the course of a year, I would design a number of event posters. As the year is coming to an end, it dawned on me that I had not done any of that kind of work this year and I still wanted to design some posters regardless. With so many events being cancelled or postponed this year it made sense to me, to create a piece of work about it”

It’s surprising to think that each of us had to give up an event that we all cared about a lot, something that would normally be like going to a museum or simply enjoying a movie at the cinema.

Lydia Leith created these wonderful posters, which can be purchased here in her online shop, in which the words “postponed”, “cancelled” and “nothing” stand out in the poster and become protagonists.

Hoping to return to concerts as soon as possible but not only.
With the hope that the British artist is wrong and that Christmas will not be cancelled, here are all her posters.
