Art Against Empire: Graphic Responses to U.S. Interventions Since World War II
(originally titled: The Anti-War Show)
‘The Anti-War Show’…is a provocative historical exhibition that surveys antiwar agitprop during the last half-century, while tacitly participating in today’s budding movement…The best of these posters are graphically simple, linguistically blunt and conceptually resonant.
—Christopher Knight, Los Angeles Times, January 15, 2003
This poster exhibition documents continuous domestic and international opposition to U.S. interventions into the domestic affairs of sovereign nations since the end of World War II. Political, economic and military interventions, many of them covert, have repeatedly resulted in unacceptable deaths and misery for millions. These posters show hopes and dreams, and the pain of dreams destroyed. Their graphic intensity results from expressing the rage engendered by U.S. actions through art.
This online exhibition has been made possible with support from The Andy Warhol Foundation; Department of Cultural Affairs, City of Los Angeles; The James Irvine Foundation; The Getty Foundation; The Los Angeles County Arts Commission; and The John Randolph Haynes and Dora Haynes Foundation.
