Exhibition | Sedition: The Art of Agitation

Hosted by State Library of New South Wales

Sedition: The Art of Agitation showcases the State Library’s little known and rarely seen collections of high-impact, attention-grabbing poster art of the 60s, 70s and 80s. Produced during the creative tsunami of public art and protest that broke out in Sydney’s underground at this time, these thought-provoking political and promotional posters plastered the walls and streets of the inner city and suburbs.  Highlighting issues close to the hearts of Sydney’s artists and activists of the day, the artworks proclaimed their messages through vibrant and provocative combinations of word and image, and offer us tantalising glimpses into the urban landscape of the recent past.
