PH x Teens: Counterculture Collage

March 10, 2023

In celebration of our new exhibitions Made in Japan: 20th-Century Poster Art and Black Power to Black People: Branding the Black Panther Party, teens are invited to create a counterculture collage on notebooks.

Artists Yokoo Tadanori and Tanaami Keiichi, featured in Made in Japan, and many designers featured in Black Power to Black People contributed to the growing anti-establishment movement of the 60s, known as counterculture, in response to the civil rights movement, anti-war efforts, and anti-censorship movements. These artists utilized collage, digital media, and radical imagery to make bold and progressive demands to change the status quo.

Inspired by their work, teens will design their own radical counterculture message using collage. After they complete their notebooks, teens are encouraged to take what they create into the exhibits to explore.

PH x Teens is a drop-in program for young adults ages 13 to 18. Advanced registration is encouraged, but participants are not expected to stay the entire time; guests should plan to spend about an hour on this interactive, self-guided activity.
