Art Exhibit — "Anarchism and the Political Art of Les Temps Nouveaux, 1895 – 1914"

Organized around the social themes and aspirations that defined the politics of the anarchist movement, this exhibition addresses issues still relevant today, such as rural and industrial labor, the plight of the homeless, cross-border migration, child abuse among the clergy, opposition to war and antimilitarism, social revolution, and visions of a coming anarchist utopia. In addition to prints, Les Temps Nouveaux artists also publicized their call for a new society through postcards—an early example of “mail art”—and brochure and book illustrations, some of which served as educational tools for working-class children. In the process, they used graphic arts as innovative experimentation in a way that conveyed their message to a broad public. With a weekly circulation of up to 18,000 copies worldwide, Les Temps Nouveaux was the most important forum for collaboration between anarchists and progressive artists during this time.

Tu, W, F, Sa 10am-5pm, Th 10am-9pm (General admission is free from 5-9pm), Su Noon-5pm.
