Fans of The Smiths who’ll be in Barcelona this month take note: The FNAC Triangle Photo Gallery is hosting an exhibit called “25 Years Without The Smiths,” featuring a fan’s private collection of vintage Rough Trade promotional posters advertising the release of the band’s classic albums and singles.
The show, which opened June 26, runs through July 20 and includes 20 posters for singles, from 1983’s “Hand in Glove” through 1987’s “Shoplifters of the World Unite,” plus posters for each of the band’s four studio albums, three compilations and one live album. Collector Marc Capella bills it as “the first complete collection of The Smiths promotional posters.”
