BANNER
100 YEARS OF PROTEST

11 AUGUST - 21 OCTOBER

This exhibition brings together two collections of banners separated by some 100 years and produced in two different continents: Suffrage banners from The Women’s Library collection and contemporary banners from the Protest Banner Lending Library, a contemporary project by American based artist Aram Han Sifuentes.

Each banner in the exhibition has been made by hand to express a political position in a succinct form.

Her work has been exhibited and performed at the Jane Addams Hull-House Museum (Chicago, Illinois), Chicago Cultural Center (Chicago, Illinois), Pulitzer Arts Foundation (St. Louis, MO), Asian Arts Initiative (Philadelphia, PA), Chung Young Yang Embroidery Museum (Seoul, South Korea), Centro de Textiles del Mundo Maya (Chiapas, Mexico), and the Design Museum (London, UK).
