China's Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution produced thousands of powerful social and political posters exhorting the people in a sweeping transformation of Chinese society. These brilliantly colorful images of cultural celebration, industrial development, agricultural production, and revolutionary heroes were displayed in homes and public spaces across the country. Ann Tompkins provides a personal account of living in Beijing during the Cultural Revolution, and Lincoln Cushing presents a slideshow on the internal dynamics and international context in which these posters flourished. Their book on the subject will be available. A discussion period will conclude their presentation.
