Guns vs. Butter exhibition

For the month of December, 2012, I presented an exhibition at Future Tenant in Pittsburgh that I put together along with Josh MacPhee. "Guns vs. Butter" was the first collaboration between Justseeds and the Interference Archive, and it's also the first time that Interference has lent a body of work out for an exhibit. Josh pooled together a range of historical anti-war prints and posters from the collection at Interference, and I interspersed them with newer anti-war print work from Justseeds, including the Justseeds collaborative portfolio with Iraq Veterans Against the War and Booklyn, "War is Trauma". The show "contextual(ized) current socially-motivated print graphics alongside a history of posters as an integral element of popular grassroots movements against war, colonialism, and military occupation." Check out the slideshow above for a tour (of sorts). Special thanks to Bec Young for help pulling the show together on the gallery walls!
