MassArt presents Rebellion and Grace: The Graphic Workshop Exhibition 1970-1992 on view from August 24 - September 25, 2015.
The exhibition will survey the history and accomplishments of the Graphic Workshop, an artists' collaborative in Boston, conceived at MassArt. The Workshop produced hundreds of silkscreen posters from 1970-1992 using color and art to proclaim political ideas, and to publicize avant-garde theater, public health campaigns, and the plights of endangered species.
Rebellion and Grace will feature eighty-five posters and archival materials tracing the group's activism from the anti-war and civil rights protests of the 1970s to the environmentalist movement of the 1980s and 1990s.
