About

A part of the upcoming exhibition The Freedom Principle, the posters from concerts and bands associated with the AACM bear the marks of use—from nail holes, folding, rain, and the handmade—pointing toward the impromptu nature of the shows, their practicality, as well as an interest in the visual arts.
