May 68: Street Posters from the Rebellion

To commemorate the revolutionary spirit of 1968, and to celebrate its own 40th birthday, The Hayward is presenting the first major display in the UK of posters produced by French students and workers during the strikes of May 1968 in Paris. These posters comprise some of the most brilliant graphic works ever to have been associated with a movement for social and political change. Produced anonymously by art students and striking workers, the posters were distributed for free, their bold graphic messages appearing on the barricades, carried in demonstrations and plastered on walls across France.

Dates: 1 May - 1 June 2008
Hours: Daily 10am - 6pm, Friday until 10pm

Location: Hayward Project Space, Southbank Centre, London, SE1 8XZ
