Part of the joy of the UK con­ven­tion scene is that no mat­ter where you live there’s an event on your doorstep. But some­times it’s worth mak­ing the ef­fort to go that lit­tle bit fur­ther, es­pe­cially in the case of Star Wars: An Art Odyssey, an of­fi­cially li­censed Star Wars ex­hibit tak­ing place in Mar­seilles for the next few months.

The Poster Posse are be­hind the event, in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Le Café Pixel Gallery and Acme Ar­chives Ltd. Be­tween them they’ve cre­ated 80 orig­i­nal pieces of art for the ex­hibit which will bring to life the pre­vi­ous Star Wars movies ( the orig­i­nal tril­ogy more so than the pre­quels, we’d guess) and scratch the sur­face of what is imag­ined for The Force Awak­ens.

Want to com­bine your trip with another geeky event? The ex­hibit will be the main at­trac­tion of the Star Wars Vil­liage dur­ing Mar­seille’s Hero Fes­ti­val con­ven­tion, which takes place on 7- 8 Novem­ber and boasts all man­ner of science fic­tion and fan­tasy themed hap­pen­ings. Bon voy­age!
