Broadside Attractions: Vanquished Terrains takes inspiration from the historical broadside and reflects on contemporary events and culture using the theme of “vanquished terrains” as a point of departure. Historically the broadside has been defined as a large sheet of paper printed on one side and designed to be plastered onto walls in public areas to announce events, proclamations, or news. Before newspapers, magazines, and the internet, there was the broadside.
Organized in collaboration with curators Megan Wilson and Maw Shein Win, this project is part of Intersection’s larger exploration of language, place, and storytelling that pays homage to the history of printed matter, highlights cross-disciplinary work between artists and writers, and embraces a 21st Century reinterpretation of one of the original forms of public communication. - Kevin Chen, Program Director: Visual Arts, Literary & Jazz at Intersection
