San Francisco's START SOMA gallery has just announced a traveling international exhibition of modern propaganda art called PROPAGANDA III. Debuting on July 4th at Start's SF gallery, the show will feature modern propaganda posters by more than 300 artists from around the world. Following its NorCal unveiling, the show will travel to a host of international cities through 2008 including Milwaukee, Austin, Portland, Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Washington, New Orleans, Chicago, Detroit, Los Angeles, Denver, Las Vegas, Tehran, Copenhagen, Singapore, Bologna, Rome, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Istanbul, Paris, Prague, and Zurich, for a series of one-day art shows at like-minded galleries and installation spaces. Interestingly enough, the show's organizer, JOHN DOFFING, promises that the exhibit is open to submissions by any & all artists and that absolutely "no curation or censorship" will be exercised when assembling the shows. In addition, none of the artwork on display will be available for sale during the shows, but rather only through the participating artist's private websites. In Doffing's words, "This is not a commercial art show, but rather a truly global celebration of free speech and untrammeled freedom of expression." After the tour has ended, all original artwork will be donated to the Center for the Study of Political Graphics (CSPG) in Los Angeles. CSPG’s growing archive currently contains more than 60,000 domestic and international posters produced in a staggering array of visual styles and printing media, dating from the Russian Revolution to the present. With 95% of the archive dating from the 1960s to the present, CSPG maintains the largest archive of post World War II political posters on Earth. Stay tuned for more developments as the show moves forth and keep an eye out for a tour date near you...
