What is a poster and how is it different from a print, a handbill, or a flyer? What makes a poster valuable? Join Angelina Lippert, chief curator and director of content at Poster House in New York City, the first and only museum in the United States dedicated to the art and history of the poster, and learn about how this ephemeral medium marries the worlds of art and commerce. This talk will cover the birth of posters in the mid-1800s, major stylistic movements, important moments in printing history, and a glimpse into the wide array of exhibitions Lippert has curated on posters.

Angelina Lippert is the author of The Art Deco Poster and has lectured at the School of Visual Arts, The Cooper Union, New York University, the Pratt Institute, The New York Times, Columbia University, and The Sotheby’s Institute of Art. She has written for Muse by Clio and is currently a reviewer at the New York Journal of Books. She holds an M.A. in the art of the Russian avant-garde from the Courtauld Institute of Art in London and a B.A. in theology and art history from Smith College.

This is an in-person event taking place at Next Stage Arts Project, 15 Kimball Hill, Putney, VT 05346.
