The National Art School Gallery in conjunction with Sedition: a festival of art, music and pictures presents Paper Tigers an exhibition of the 1970s celebrating Sydney’s dynamic poster art and public protest movements, from the late 1960s through the ’70s to the early ’80s.

Paper Tigers celebrates Sydney’s printed visual culture, including posters, prints and ephemera from a range of both celebrated and anonymous artists and designers, the exhibition presents a snapshot of a period when vibrant and experimental creative production incited social action.
