All of Us or None

March 23, 2012

I’m very excited that I’m going to be able to be in the Bay for the opening of this exhibition. Michael Rossman’s collection is finally available to a broad public thanks to all the curating, cataloging, and organizing work of Lincoln Cushing. See you there!
 

All of Us or None: Social Justice Posters of the San Francisco Bay Area

March 31, 2012 – August 19, 2012
Oakland Museum, 1000 Oak St., Oakland, CA 94607
 
Celebrating the recent acquisition of the renowned All Of Us or None poster collection, OMCA presents the first comprehensive exhibition exploring the poster renaissance that started in the mid-1960s as a legitimate art form as well as a powerful tool for public debate on social justice issues. Presented as a companion exhibition to The 1968 Exhibit, the exhibition features 68 original political posters framed and traditionally hung, in addition to countless posters digitally printed and collaged on the gallery walls, a method similar to the way they were originally displayed.
 
The exhibition is guest curated by collection archivist and author Lincoln Cushing. Accompanying the exhibition is a catalog published by Heyday Press. A portion of the collection can be seen online HERE. The image to the right: Robert Bechtle, Back to skool week—again, 1969.
