February 15 – March 31
Opening Reception: February 15, 6-8pm
In the spring of May 1968, an occupation begun by a group of French students grew to one of the largest demonstrations in modern history. Striking workers and protesters brought Paris to a halt, and the posters and graffiti that amplified their message have become part of our visual vernacular. With original artwork that was posted on the streets of Paris fifty years ago and contemporary prints influenced by current student led gun violence protests, this exhibition explores the role of graphic art in political organizing.
