Characterized by a strength of their graphic design, the clarity of their message and their ability to grab people’s attention, protest posters have become a symbol of true resistance in the past decades. In an age of an increasing social and political unrest and uncertainty, their role is as salient as ever.
VISIONAIRE magazine, which is known for developing, curating, and producing art multiples, events, public art installations, film, branded content, apparel, and publications, is announcing its 68th edition in style. This special open-source issue features ten original protest posters designed by key artists and activists, providing us with the essential tools needed for fighting for what we care about and having our voices heard.
Artists and activists taking part in the collection with their works are Nan Goldin, Zoe Buckham and Hank Willis Thomas, Candice Breitz, Kim Gordon, Martine Gutierrez, Vivienne Westwood, Katerina Jebb, Tiona Nekkia MccLoddden and Pusha T, Marilyn Minter and Faith Ringgold, each focusing on a different issue. Tackling concerns such as opioid crises, the lack of representation of African American artists in art institutions and equal voting rights, these artists have created posters which are powerful and inspirational.
VISIONAIRE 68 NOW! is free and available to all from Monday 29th October here, as well as on Reddit. Also available is a limited ’deluxe edition’ featuring a collectors series of posters, which have all been expertly printed on canvases to be displayed or put to use at rallies, conventions, and marches.
Let’s take a look at six protest posters in the collection!
