Building a Global Environmentalism Poster Collection: A Conversation Between Curators

Curators Tim Medland and Angelina Lippert from Poster House, the first poster museum in the United States, will discuss their current exhibit, "We Tried to Warn You! Environmental Crisis Posters, 1970-2020." They'll delve into visual culture from around the world, exploring images that have helped shape discourse and narratives about environmental issues for the past 50 years. While charting this global history of environmental activism through posters, they'll also explain their approach to locating, acquiring, showcasing, and preserving such a rich variety of print materials.
