Worth the trip to Ballarat to see
Political posters are supposed to attack the hearts and minds of their viewers, to instil passion and create action. The exhibition features posters from the 1960s onwards, which will include both Australian and international artists. The posters address a diverse range of issues, such as war, racism, sexism, AIDS, environmental destruction, nuclear proliferation, consumerism, and political leadership. At times humorous, and others heartfelt, this exhibition focuses on how poster design has developed over the decades and the effects they have had on entire generations.
