Art of Solidarity: Cuban posters for African liberation 1967 - 1989

13 January 2017 - 6 August 2017

Details

Art of Solidarity provides a fascinating look at posters produced in Cuba as a form of social and political resistance, designed to support freedom movements around the world.

The exhibition features 32 rarely-seen posters from a private collection which highlight some of the liberation and independence movements that swept through Africa after the Second World War.

Produced through the Organisation in Solidarity with the People of Africa, Asia, and Latin America (OSPAAAL), the posters are often beautifully designed and wonderfully colourful, yet reflect what would become some of the most ruthless conflicts and historically significant events taking place in Africa during the Cold War era.

OSPAAAL posters reveal the idealistic spirit of the Cuban Revolution, which was intent on fighting imperialism, globalisation and defending human rights.
