This exhibit which is presented in Chile for the first time, contemplates one of the largest collections of Chinese propaganda posters in the world. It consists of a selection of posters and original paintings used as a model for printed sheets in the period between 1949 and 1983. The collection which is planned to be exhibited in various cultural spaces around the world, includes 89 posters divided into categories: Society, Industry, Socialism, Paintings, which are also divided into sub-categories to thereby help the viewer to understand its history and creation.

 

Pursuant to its great historical and political value, the works on display were chosen primarily for their artistic value as evidence of a time and place in which art was seen as a political instrument and subject to government oversight. The posters are made in different artistic styles but predominantly social realism combined with traditional Chinese watercolor.
