Artist billboards on our fraught present and uncertain future, from Etel Adnan to Stanley Whitney
The book features all 153 original posters created by the 127 artists invited to participate in It's Urgent!, an open-form touring exhibition. Artists from all over the world responded to Hans Ulrich Obrist's invitation to address the most pressing themes of our times--ecology, inequality, common future, solidarity, anti-racism and social justice. It's Urgent! aims to make the artists' ideas open up to new audiences and insert them into public life and the community at large.
