The best way to learn history is to visualise it! Since 1998, Josh MacPhee has commissioned and produced over 100 posters by over 80 artists that pay tribute to revolution, racial justice, women's rights, queer liberation, labour struggles and creative activism. These essential moments are presented as a visual tour through decades and across continents, from the perspective of some of the most interesting and socially engaged artists working today. Includes work by Cristy Road, Swoon, Nicole Schulman, Christopher Cardinale, Sabrina Jones, Eric Drooke and Klutch.
