Defiant Proclamations
Radical Posters from the 1960s to the Present

For decades, Bay Area walls have been pasted with bold art and pertinent messages about the politics, practices, and abuses of contemporary mainstream culture and its co-opted voices. Also speaking outside the frameworks of organized labor and left movements, individual artists and collectives have shouted defiant proclamations with ink and paper. Today, political graphics have reached a broad audience via many media sources, hopefully creating a new wave of radical art as well as a redefinition of visual art and it's usual commodified structures. With a strong history in the Bay Area, this one night only exhibit will feature works old and new, giving a glimpse of the broad range of opinions and styles that have papered walls across the area.

Posters, handbills, and artifacts from:

the private collection of Vince Dugar
the Interference Archive (Josh MacPhee and Dara Greenwald)
the SF Print Collective 
Jesus Barraza
Mona Caron
Melanie Cervantes
Hugh D'Andrade
Kevin Keating
Claude Moller
Soft Zulah
