The title, “Get With the Action,” taken from a screenprint by the artist and progressive activist nun Corita Kent, explores the medium of the poster as a communication device. The works on view, focused on the creative output of the Bay Area and beyond, highlight the power of applied graphic design and its utility in presenting information while rallying citizens around a cause.
Curated in three rotations over six months, each presentation of “Get With the Action” calls attention to SFMOMA’s commitment to graphic design and to the continually relevant, if not urgent, movements of our time.
