New Online Exhibitions from CSPG

July 15, 2009


The Center for the Study of Political Graphics has just put up some great new online exhibitions. You can go to their site and look through each of these exhibits virtually, clicking through dozens of images, each with credit and historical information. This is the kind of use of the web to distribute images and info that I get excited about, where I can look at current and historical material, learn something about its creation, and think about issues and struggles and how they have been represented visually. In addition, multiple of the shows include Justseeds folks, including Favianna, Jesus and myself. In addition a lot of our friends and fellow travelers are in there, such as Andalusia K. (whose prison print was also in our 2008 portfolio), John Jennings, Design Action, John Carr, Karen Fiorito, and Scott Boylston.
Here are the 4 new exhibitions, check them out!:
Real to Reel: A Political Reflection of Hollywood Film Posters
Prison Nation: Posters on the Prison Industrial Complex
Subvertisements: Using Ads and Logos for Protest
Reclaiming the F-Word: Posters on International Feminisms
