Political Poster Art in Aotearoa

Opening: Tuesday 20th September  5pm-7pm

ArtStation Gallery   -1 Ponsonby Rd, Newtown, Auckland

Kotare’s exhibition of political posters, “Art/Movement”, celebrates the creative force of flaxroot activism: the passionate energy of those working for justice in Aotearoa as embodied in the power, beauty and humour of street poster art.

Highlighting a variety of key themes in the Kotare collection, the exhibition at the ArtStation Gallery features over 100 posters on honouring te Tiriti o Waitangi, anti-racism/anti-apartheid, unemployed workers’ rights, feminism, peace, environmentalism, and education.

Come along and be inspired!
