Graphic Imperatives at FAU

From Nov 9th, 2006 through Jan 27th, 2007The Graphic Imperatives exhibition at Florida Atlantic University (FAU) is a select retrospective of 40 years of international sociopolitical posters. This media utilizes the powers of visual metaphor, savage irony and humor. The themes of dissent, liberation, racism, sexism, human rights, civil rights, environmental and health concerns, AIDS, war, literacy and tolerance provide a window to an age of great change. Posters make ideas for social change accessible by recording struggles for peace, justice and liberation. They can celebrate important acts of resistance, providing alternative explanations, interpretations, narratives and myths through creativity. Posters indicate the artists’ social commitment. Whether they communicate, exhort, persuade, instruct, celebrate, or warn, posters still call to action through bold messages and striking iconography. For more information, please call: 561.297.2966
