the @delawarehistoricalsociety’s wwi exhibition opened yesterday, which means i’m now returning all the messages i’ve ignored lately during these 15-hour days......holla? 😅😬
if this wall of propaganda posters (all repro from the society’s extraordinary collection) leaves you feeling uneasy, then stop by the museum and/or check out the new insta and curatorial blog that launch after thxgiving.
i jumped into the exhibit planning unexpectedly in the latter months, but i’m proud of the narrative we’ve been able to eek out in the end. we’re asking people to think about what the war did to social progressivism, whether #blacklivesmatter(ed) during or afterward, and how pure the mandate to make the world “safe for democracy” really was.
buckle up, friends, and stay tuned ✌🏿✌🏾✌🏼
