NXT Curator Series: We Tried to Warn You! Environmental Crisis Posters, 1970–2020

April 21 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free to attend; donations appreciated

Join curator Tim Medland for a vibrant discussion of his latest exhibition We Tried to Warn You! Environmental Crisis Posters, 1970–2020. Recently receiving a full-page, incredible review in the New York Times, this show chronicles how graphic designers from around the world have attempted to tackle issues of environmental activism—and how they’ve both succeeded and failed at changing public consciousness. You will walk away with not only a deeper understanding of how we got to the level of climate crisis we are in today, but also with hope for the future regarding what can actually be done to counteract man-made environmental devastation.

Tim Medland is an independent curator who focuses on the history of visual and material culture. He holds an MA in Museum Studies from the University of Leicester, with a concentration in socially engaged practice. His research interests include environmental activism and sustainability, and the histories of transport, propaganda, colonialism, and migration.

The NXT Curator Series is sponsored in part by the Putney Public Library.
