The 11th IRPC exhibition was hosted by the AKTO, College of Art Design in Athens, Greece. This was the 3rd IRPC exhibition in Greece organized by AKTO.
“The Art of Reggae” showcased a collection of 75 posters from, both, 2013 and 2014 winners from across the world, including the Greek winners’ posters of Stavros Damos, Pinelopi Vassilaki & Anastasia Verteouri and Manolis Angelakis. An exceptional piece in the venue was the original wood cut image by Greek artist and designer, Theo Kontaxis who received the 9th place position in 2014.
Attendees were given a report presentation by founders of the IRPC, on the successes of the contest since the last time the exhibition came to Greece. They were also treated to some fantastic selections of classic reggae music performance by Greek “Selectas” on the champion “Irie Action Soundsystem”, and the special appearance of two veteran “Soundman” Ranking Johnny from Greece and “Fabrizio, Mr Roots and Culture” from Italy who had the crowd asking for more. This was truly a fantastic evening of Word, Sound and Art making a perfect synergy and powerful impact.
