PopRally Presents: The Art of Dissent
August 12, 2008 § Leave a comment
This panel discussion looked at how dissent is more than a momentary impulse for artists; how politics are an essential component of both art and their interactions with community and commerce. In this panel, artists and musicians discuss how politics and art mix in their work and working processes.
The most notable panelist was artist and JustSeeds editor Josh MacPhee. Im a big fan of MacPhee- he began with describing the Celebrate People’s History poster series and finished with the announcement of his latest book, Reproduce and Revolt. It is a great resource of illustrations and graphics for use on flyers, posters, t-shirts, buttons, brochures, and other visual aspects of political campaigns. The graphics are easy to reproduce, and all are available for use without permission.
