At 4pm, on Friday, June 12, the Linen Hall Library will host a lecture by Lincoln Cushing. Through a selection of late 20th century posters from the United States, Cuba and China, Cushing will examine the myriad ways that antagonists and protagonists are represented, and the role that posters play in fomenting or defusing conflict situations.

who documents, catalogues, and disseminates oppositional political
culture of the late 20th century. His books include Revolucion! Cuban Poster, Agitate! Educate! Organize! - American Labor Posters and All Of Us Or None — Poster Art of the San Francisco Bay Area. His work can be seen at docspopuli.org.
