A bastion of counter-culture thought and avant-garde theater since 1947, the consistently adventurous graphic design of the Living Theatre is mind-blowing unto itself. Ranging from performance flyers for John Cage, Kenneth Anger, Cecil Taylor, Allen Ginsberg and a post-war counter-culture who’s who, to the stunning show posters for original Living Theatre productions like Frankenstein, The Money Tower, Paradise Now and Ubu Roi, the posters in this show range from the early 1950’s through the 1970’s and showcase printing techniques ranging from stencil to letterpress to silkscreen to lithograph.
