POSTERS OF DISCONTENT

IV

CALL FOR ENTRY DEADLINE: SEPTEMBER 12, 2020

Like fire and molotovs, politics and poster design go together. Be it campaign, unity, policy enforcement, or protest--political posters leave a visual imprint on history. This exhibition seeks to examine points of contention in the current socio-political arena. Designers from various backgrounds were invited to submit work taking a stand on subjects of their choosing, created within the last four years. As a result, the work showcases multiple and often conflicting viewpoints.  Just in time for the 2020 election, the Posters of Discontent will feature a wide range of politically-based poster designs from a national and international group of artists. Designed to spur discussion and discourse and curated by Prof. Andrew Maniotes, the work presented will range from the political left, right and center viewpoints on a range of hot button topics of the day.
