“Aesthetically,” Susan Sontag wrote in 1970, “the poster has always been parasitic on the respectable arts of painting, sculpture, even architecture.” But what of those efforts that are parasitic on the poster? Interference Archive, a not-for-profit art space in the Gowanus section of Brooklyn, has organized an exhibition of posters created by the Cuban internationalist propaganda group Organization of Solidarity with the People of Asia, Africa, and Latin America (OSPAAAL). The show, “Armed by Design” (through November 29), is oriented around a collection of posters and other printed matter produced by OSPAAAL, which was founded in 1966 after the conclusion of the Tricontinental Conference, an internationalist gathering of political parties and national liberation movements from 35 countries hosted that year in Havana.
