FREE exhibition and entry
The Art of Solidarity exhibition features posters that highlight some of the liberation and independence movements that swept through Africa after the Second World War, many inspired by the Cuban Revolution of 1959.
Produced through the Organisation in Solidarity with the People of Africa, Asia, and Latin America (OSPAAAL), the posters are often beautifully-designed examples of graphic art and yet capture the Cold War era’s impact on Africa with its revolutions, coups, proxy wars and the struggles for independence from imperialism and colonial rule.
Art of Solidarity provides a fascinating glimpse into the history of solidarity posters produced in Cuba as a form of social and political resistance, designed to support freedom movements around the world.
