The poster has participated in modernity fraternizing with ideology and war and directing the crowds towards commercial and political activities. A medium of communication defined by its visual efficiency; a format determined by its size, its materiality, and its distribution. The influence of the poster can be traced in public and personal imagery, paradoxically combining an ephemeral quality with a desire to accumulate, revise, and keep.
Featuring American Artist, Itziar Barrio, Anton Ginzburg, Gordon Hall, Paul John, Sara Magenheimer and Alan Ruiz.
