Corita Kent: Get with the Action

Saturday 05 May 2018Sunday 14 October 2018

Exhibition of screenprint banners and posters by Corita Kent (1918-1986), an artist, a famously charismatic educator and a Roman Catholic nun based in Los Angeles during the 1960s. A contemporary of Andy Warhol and Ed Ruscha, her bright, bold work confronted issues of poverty, racism and war with an aesthetic more aligned with protest movements of the time than traditional religious imagery. Frequently appearing on the streets surrounding the Immaculate Heart College in Los Angeles, where she taught, Kent's imagery aimed to capture the public imagination in order to influence social change.
