Loyola University Chicago’s Crown Center Gallery Displays Four Decades of Social Activism Art

Loyola University Chicago’s Department of Fine and Performing Arts (DFPA) is hosting its third gallery exhibition of the season, The Graphic Imperative: International Posters for Peace, Social Justice, and the Environment. The newest exhibition is a select retrospective of forty years of international sociopolitical posters that include the themes dissent, liberation, racism, sexism, human rights, civil rights, environmental and health concerns, AIDS, war, literacy, and tolerance, collectively providing a window to an age of great change.

Focusing on the issues of our turbulent times, these 121 posters attempt to show the social, political, and aesthetic concerns of many cultures in a single exhibition through delineating themes and contrasting political realities.
