poster for "Impressions from South Africa, 1965 to Now" Exhibition

This event has ended.

The exhibition is drawn entirely from the collection of The Museum of Modern Art, and brings together nearly 100 prints, posters, books, and wall stencils by approximately 30 artists and collectives that demonstrate the unusual reach, range, and impact of printmaking in South Africa during and after a period of political upheaval. From the earliest print, a 1965 linoleum cut by Azaria Mbatha, to screenprinted posters created during the height of the antiapartheid movement, to recent works by a younger generation that investigate a multiplicity of formats in the wake of apartheid, these works are striking examples of printed art as a tool for social, political, and personal expression.
