In Defense of Democracy is an exhibition of 20 posters printed on tear-off pads that I curated with the help of  Maiza Hixson . The posters are each designed by a different artist and are inspired by  historian Timothy Snyder's  list of Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century outlined in his NYT best selling book,   On Tyranny   (2017).   The posters are accompanied by an edition of handmade pamphlets featuring all the poster designs and a curatorial essay by co-curator Maiza Hixson.   The exhibition opened at the Santa Barbara Center for Art, Science, and Technology, or  SBCAST gallery , on Thursday, May 4th and at UCSB's Glassbox Gallery on Wednesday, May 17th.
