APT/ART #1: 50 Years of Protest Posters in the UK

Our first Apt/Art exhibition is organized by the Museum of Care and the Museum of Unrest, curated by Clive Russell and John Phillips is held in two places.

The exhibition, which coincides with the launch of the David Graeber institute, includes posters and banners from 1975 to the present day.

Presenting graphics from the early days of Notting Hill Carnival, Outspan fruit bans, Nuclear disarmament, rent and squatters rights, environmental activism (including Extinction Rebellion) to the recent David Graeber Fight Club at HKW Berlin in May.

The exhibition shows how poster designers collaborate with one another and draw upon a rich history for inspiration, a point made strongly by the inclusion of a banner stating ‘Deeds not Words’.

The exhibition includes work by: Anthony Burrill, Michael Collins, Miles Glyn, Sophie Miller, John Phillips, Paddington Printshop, Arthur Stovell, Clive Russell, Marcus Walters.
