In conjunction with the exhibition Facing the Giant – Three Decades of Dissent: Shepard Fairey, Carol A. Wells, Founder and Executive Director of the Center for the Study of Political Graphics, will engage in conversation with LAM Curatorial Fellow, Rochelle Steiner. They will discuss art, activism, and posters that have changed history—including Fairey’s Barack Obama “Hope” poster, which was an iconic image in the campaign for the first African American president of the United States.
The Center for the Study of Political Graphics (CSPG), located in Los Angeles, is an activist, educational, and research archive that collects, preserves, documents, and exhibits posters relating to historical and contemporary movements for social change. For three decades CSPG has been creating a special community of international artists, activists, donors, curators, students, and teachers who share a passion for the power of political art to educate and inspire people to action.
