Celebrate People's History!
Posters of Resistance and Revolution
Exhibition Opens Saturday, January 15th 6-9pm
show continues through February 6th on weekends 12-6
Book Release Party final Friday, January 28th 5-8pm
50+ posters from the Celebrate People's History project (and now book), organized by Josh MacPhee of the Just Seeds artists' cooperative, that pay tribute to revolution, racial justice, women's rights, queer liberation, labor struggles, and creative activism and organizing. Celebrate People's History! presents these essential moments - acts of resistance and great events in an often hidden history of human and civil rights struggles - as a visual tour through decades and across continents, from the perspective of some of the most interesting and socially engaged artists working today, including the Percolator's own Dave Loewenstein.
In addition to the CPH posters, the Percolator will show posters from Lawrence collections that respond to and illuminate local struggles from the past 40 years.
