Poster House is thrilled to partner with esteemed poster expert Marc H. Choko as he shares with us his experiences collecting Chinese posters from the 1920s to the early 2000s.

Marc will go over how he first fell in love with Chinese graphic design in China and how he built his collection through personal connections in the country. He will also touch on issues of reproductions and forgeries, and how the market for these treasures evolved as China opened up more to the rest of the world. Much of Marc’s incredible collection comprises our current exhibition The Sleeping Giant: Posters & The Chinese Economy, which he also co-curated. This is an incredible opportunity to learn from a seasoned collector and expert in the field.
