This is a proposal for a collaboration with the Manchester based Black & Blue Writers.
I recently attended the opening of a new curatorial/arts project called the Lionel Dobie Project. As part of the opening there was a beer tasting session organised by Art&CraftBeer. He makes home brewed customised beers and links them to art projects. Very good beer too!
This got me thinking about art beer labels, customised beer bottle labels, one off branding.
Black & Blue writers have a launch coming up – at it they will be celebrating their project and showing artists responses to their manifesto. My proposal is to incorporate sections of the manifesto into beer bottle labels.
I discovered an online label maker and set about designing some variants.
Even if they don’t end up on bottles, they might make an interesting set of prints.
