Type Out Loud
Curated by Ashley Taylor & Dori Griffin
Broadside: A single sheet of paper printed on one side only. AKA: poster. Broadsides have been a popular ephemeral format for distributing news, announcements, advertisements, social commentary, and ballads for centuries.
This exhibition highlights the social role broadsides play in communicating messages to public audiences. Designed to be plastered onto walls as a disposable form of street literature, broadsides in fact record our cultural histories. The posters in this show introduce the history of the broadside, showcase the design and print process, and survey how contemporary poster design informs our own visual culture. Typographic broadsides can be a powerful, artistic form of broadcasting social, political, and cultural messages. Type Out Loud shows how.
