Spencer exhibit explores art and social radicalism

In describing the exhibit "Printed Art and Social Radicalism," Stephen Goddard, senior curator at the Helen Foresman Spencer Museum of Art, says, "Graphic arts can be efficiently and inexpensively distributed in large numbers, and they therefore lend themselves to such political image making."

The pieces in the show, such as Richard Mock's linoleum cut "All American Family, 1995," above, use provocative, politically challenging imagery. The works range from conceptual art to fine art prints to posters and handbills.

Goddard views the show as something of an experiment. Running through July 21, it's a small summer show that draws from museum's extensive collections. He sees the potential for expanding the show into a larger exhibit during the academic year because the show's content, which addresses political, economic and social themes, has interdisciplinary appeal.

Half to two-thirds of the prints were acquired within the last 15 years.
