The title ‘Get with the Action’ is taken from a screen-print by the artist, activist and nun Corita Kent, who’s work using serigraphs drew attention to issues such as poverty, racism and war.
The works featured in the exhibition were primarily created in the Bay Area of San Francisco. Four rotations are presented over the course of the exhibition.
