Join Poster House—the first museum in the United States dedicated exclusively to posters—and Isometric—a Brooklyn-based design studio led by queer people of color—as we discuss the transformative role of posters in promoting inclusion, equity, and justice.
The program will begin with a presentation by Poster House Chief Curator Angelina Lippert on the history and purpose of posters, including recent initiatives to address the pandemic. Next, Isometric partners Andy Chen and Waqas Jawaid will present a few case studies of how tech, educational, and cultural institutions are using poster and spatial design to redress racism and authenticate the experiences of people of color.
The event will conclude with a conversation among the presenters and a Q&A session with attendees. Attendees are welcome to create and share their own posters in response to the program, during or after the event.
This program is intended for ages 12 and up.
