04 May Public Lives of Posters in San Francisco’s Chinatown, Manilatown, and Japantown, 1970s and 1980s
Tuesday, May 4 / 5:00 PM
MultiCultural Center Meeting Rooms
This exhibition is a special compendium which well encapsulates visual cultures, global ethnopoles, and urban public spaces of that time. On street poles, storefront windows, and community centers, historic Asian Pacific American graphic art posters publicly announced and affirmed counter-narratives. Curated by Julianne P. Gavino, Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of History of Art and Architecture and IHC Research Fellow. The exhibit will be open for viewing in the MCC meeting rooms from May 4 – June 11.
Sponsored by the Dept. of Asian American Studies, the California Ethnic and Multicultural Archives, UCSB Davidson Library, Instructional Development, and the IHC’s Visual, Performing and Media Arts Grant.
