Boo-Hooray Catalog #7: Posters

Boo-Hooray is proud to present our seventh antiquarian catalog, dedicated to the poster. An incredibly diverse medium, posters deliver a message in a brief and graphic burst. This ephemeral form of communication is often left unarchived and lost to the annihilatory tick of the clock, coinciding with the one-off nature of what the posters document and announce: an exhibition, a protest, a meeting, a performance, a happening. This catalog gathers posters across a wide array of subjects such as film, art, theatre, politics, and literature; and in a variety of modes of address: polemical, didactic, and annunciatory. Included are signed posters by filmmaker John Waters, a poster advertising an early exhibition by Memphis designer Ettore Sottsass, a remarkable poster from the Young Lords Party, a Swedish Black Power poster, and much more.
