NOTRE DAME, IN.-
The Snite Museum of Art
presents the exhibition entitled The Graphic Imperative: International Posters for Peace, Social Justice and the Environment 1965 - 2005 that will be on exhibit in the Milly and Fritz Kaeser Mestrovic Studio Gallery through March 1, 2009. Elizabeth Resnick, Chaz Maviyane-Davies and Frank Baseman have organized the exhibition in collaboration with the Massachusetts College of Art and Design, supported in part by The Massachusetts College of Art and Design Foundation and Philadelphia University.
Posters make ideas for social change by becoming a visual dissent. This poster show is a select retrospective of forty years of international sociopolitical posters. Themes include dissent, liberation, racism, sexism, human rights, civil rights, environmental and health concerns, AIDS, war, literacy and tolerance, collectively providing a window to an age of great change. The 75 posters show the social, political and aesthetic concerns of many cultures in just one exhibition.
