Latin American Posters: Public Aesthetics and Mass Politics
August 22, 2008 - December 14, 2008
Latin American Posters: Public Aesthetics and Mass Politics, an exhibition which traces four decades of Latin American social and political history during a time of widespread crisis and unrest. Drawing primarily from the University of New Mexico’s unparalleled, ten thousand-strong Sam L. Slick Collection of Latin American and Iberian posters, the exhibition features 66 works that document and explore Latin America’s contemporary social and political history, as mirrored in five unifying themes: Imperialism, Solidarity, and Self Determination; Icons, Martyrs, and Charismatic Leaders; Human Rights, Feminism, and Indigenism; Revolution and Popular Movements; and Culture, Society and Film.
