Read on Zygote Press.
The printed broadside has been an important vehicle for information in Western culture since Gutenberg invented movable type, and has kept the printing press front and center in the transmission of ideas among social communities since that time. This exhibition examines both new and existing works: contemporary broadsides, printed posters and ephemera that dialogue with the idea of social justice. Many of the artists will be working in print media, but others will carry the theme of the exhibition to media like painting and sculpture. The show will feature Cleveland-based, as well as national and international artists. In addition to new works, curator, Lisa Kurzner will also work with local archives to highlight historical works related to the exhibition theme.
Exhibiting July 13 through August 25, 2018 at Zygote Press in Cleveland, Ohio.
