Art of the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution. 1966-1976

During Chairman Mao’s Great Cultural Revolution, posters and pamphlets served two purposes: satisfying the political agenda and supplying artists with an avenue to work. This catalog documents a brilliant exhibition, co-curated by the Power Plant and the Belkin Art Gallery, on Chinese Communist propaganda as art, creating an almost nostalgic record of these powerful, iconic images. With English translations of each reproduction. Essays by co-curators Scott Watson and Shengtian Zheng.
