FUMA Exhibition Launch: If you don’t fight… you lose: politics, posters and PAM

Join FUMA for the launch of this iconic exhibition from the Progressive Art Movement.  

Formed in Adelaide in 1974, PAM (Progressive Art Movement) grew out of the Flinders University Politics and Art course during a period of political volatility, student activism and industrial unrest. Spearheaded by radical thinkers Brian Medlin and Ann Newmarch, artists comprising PAM united with the aim of forging a politically-progressive culture rooted in local conditions and opposing US imperialism.

The first comprehensive presentation of their work since 1977, this exhibition features iconic prints and posters whose hard-hitting agendas are communicated through uncompromising calls to action and striking graphics.
