20 SMITH COLLEGE MUSEUM OF ART

smith.edu/artmuseum

Summer of Love: Psychedelic Posters from SCMA

June 14 – September 15

Featuring 70 original works by some of the major California poster artists of the 1960s, this exhibition explores the American counterculture through a popular visual medium that vividly evokes a particular time and place. In their attempts to target disaffected youth in the Bay Area, the artists who created the original posters on view graphically captured life in San Francisco during the late 1960s through the lens of the era’s rock concerts, drug use, and cultural gatherings. Psychedelic posters served as a kind of visual social media of their time, attracting and linking their main audience: young people in San Francisco. At the same time—with their provocative imagery and messages, inventive typography, and distinctive palette—the posters gained attention far beyond San Francisco where they were first posted or distributed.

Framework IX: Restoring the Boundaries

Two frames were also carefully conserved, an English frame surrounding Robert Smirke’s Scene from Cibber’s “The Provoked Husband” (late 18th century), and the American frame for Albert Bierstadt’s Echo Lake, Franconia Mountains, New Hampshire (1861).

Hedieh Javanshir Ilchi: A leaf from my rose garden

7/12 – 9/8
By installing two empty tents facing each other in the gallery, with all sides entirely closed off--barring the entrances and exits--the sculpture negates its utility as a shelter. Installed alone in an empty gallery, the sculptures seem suspended, without any purpose, silent.
