Join us for the exhibition reception of Notes on Solidarity: Tricontinentalism in Print in the James Gallery on Thursday, September 12th from 6:00 to 8:00 pm.

Notes on Solidarity: Tricontinentalism in Print explores the role of printed materials in Tricontinentalism: the Cold War-era political movement that aimed to unite liberation struggles across Asia, Africa, and Latin America. Bringing together a selection of international graphic production from the late 1960s and early 1970s with Tricontinental solidarity as a theme, this exhibition calls attention to the subtle relations that connect print culture to political feeling.
