An Exhibition of Rare and Original Chinese Propaganda Posters
24 July - 16 August, 2014
This exhibition for sale showcases vintage and original propaganda posters published by the Chinese government from the 1950s to 1990s. Propaganda posters were a critical and central tool used by the Chinese authorities in the second half of the 20th century to distribute messages, mobilise support and influence and guide the masses. The posters are most closely associated with the period of the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution (1966 to 1976) though they were widely used both before and after this period.
Our exhibition includes posters from the mid 1950â€™s right through to the late 1990â€™s, running the full gambit of political & social messages and campaigns all aimed to provide a simple and effective method to influence and control the People.
