I contributed an essay for the touring exhibition Graphic Advocacy: International Posters for the Digital Age 2001–2012, curated by Elizabeth Resnick. The essay, “12 Views of 120 Posters,” will be included in the catalog to be published in fall 2013, but is available now on the exhibition website here. The show is the third in a series of socio-political poster exhibitions that Resnick has co-curated, following The Graphic Imperative: International Posters for Peace, Social Justice and The Environment 1965–2005, and Graphic Intervention: 25 Years of International AIDS Awareness Posters 1985–2010. Graphic Advocacy just opened at its first venue, the Stephen D. Paine Gallery at Massachusetts College of Art & Design in Boston (my alma mater twice over) on January 15.
My thoughts on the late designer Jacqueline Casey can be found on Eye magazine’s new blog. The post is in response to Elizabeth Resnick’s piece in the latest issue of Eye, where she (like me) names Casey as most unappreciated in the field. An excellent on line gallery of her posters can be found here (via AisleOne).
