Latent Emissions, Chakaia Booker
Graphic Advocacy: International Posters For The Digital Age 2001–2012
Milly and Fritz Kaeser Mestrovic Studio Gallery January 17-March 8, 2015
This traveling exhibition is organized by Professor Elizabeth Resnick and Massachusetts College of Art and Design, Boston. It is the third exhibition in a trilogy focusing on socially conscious posters and features 100 works from 32 countries including Bolivia, Bulgaria, Hungary, Israel, Kuwait, Russia, and Singapore.
As a medium for social change, posters record our struggles for peace, social justice, environmental defense, and liberation from oppression. From the confrontational and political, to the promotional, persuasive and educational, the poster in all its forms has persisted as a vehicle for the public dissemination of ideas, information, and opinion.
The exhibition in the Snite Museum is made possible with support from the Institute for Scholarship in the Liberal Arts, College of Arts and Letters; the Center for Social Concerns; and the Department of Art, Art History & Design, University of Notre Dame.
