Abstract (English)

"Nine Toronto-based artists and designers—working with themes relevant to marginalized and under-represented communities in Canada—reinterpret the 1973 Chilean poster art exhibition Por la Vida...Siempre! (For Life...Always!). The exhibition explores intersections of contemporary social issues and the resurgence of fascist tactics within a Canadian context as well as exposes the original Por la Vida...Siempre! posters. STANCE: Design Against Fascism, brings current societal challenges such as polarization, radicalization, the rise of white nationalism and fascist tactics to the foreground. It creates a space for an audience to question how far we have truly advanced from the ideological dogmas of the past and how they continue to shape our current political, social and economic realities." -- Publisher's website.
