Cuban Poster Art

The Layout

— “Many posters have no political content at all…done to advertise films. Advertising cultural events is the task of most of the altogether nonpolitical posters. In appealing, sometimes whimsical and sometimes dramatic, images and playful typography, these posters announce movies, plays…song contests…, and the like.” (Susan Sontag, May 1970)

The layout of this exhibition was designed by Aisha Hamilton in consultation with Dr. Carlos Delgado, the librarian for Latin American Studies in 2015.
