Signal:08 collects and connects the culture and politics of international Black Power publishing, the 1960s anarchist and antimilitarist illustrations of Vera Williams and Liberation magazine, memorializing those murdered by anti-Sikh violence in India, the agitprop of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, and the aesthetics and politics of a reenactment of the largest rebellion of enslaved people in US history.
Crossing continents and communities, print and performance, Signal weaves a story of how culture is central to social transformation, both yesterday and today.
