Founded in 1967 by a group of L.A. activist-artists who created an ‘alternate everything’ printing and publishing business, Peace Press emerged from the tangle of progressive political and alternative groups that flourished during the decades between 1960 and 1990. This survey drawn from the archives of the Peace Press Collective showcases an important chapter of visual and cultural history, with posters addressing feminist causes,
workers’ rights, civil liberties, environmental concerns, and the anti-nuclear and anti-war movements. The exhibition will also feature a historical timeline, music, poetry and spoken-word performances and film clips interspersed in the galleries, and a separate film screening series.
