Special Event

Strikethrough Opening Reception

  • Date
  • Time
  • Led By Silas Munro, Stephen Coles
  • Where Letterform Archive

Be the first to view Strikethrough: Typographic Messages of Protest, a collection of over one hundred objects that chart a typographic chant of resistance across more than a century of protest movements. The exhibition showcases typographic anger and agency as seen in the streets, on the printed page, and even on the bodies of demonstrators.

This collaboration between Polymode’s Silas Munro and Letterform Archive’s Stephen Coles began during the upswell of the Black Lives Matter protests in 2020. Throughout the exhibition, Munro and Coles lead us on an exploration of the many ways we voice dissent (VOTE!, RESIST!, LOVE!, TEACH!, and STRIKE!).

Experience the Strikethrough exhibit and then stay to connect with the curators, some of the artists featured in the exhibition, and the Letterform Archive board and team. We look forward to seeing you on Saturday, July 23, to celebrate with us over delicious refreshments and surprise performances.

COVID-19 Safety Measures

Proof of Vaccination

Before entering the Archive, you will need to present valid vaccination documentation and a state-issued photo ID. Proof of vaccination may include your California digital COVID-19 vaccine record, a CLEAR digital vaccine card, your original or a photo of your CDC Vaccination Card, or an official immunization record from outside the US.

Health Screening

If you are feeling under the weather, we ask that you not attend the workshop until you are feeling better. When you arrive at the Archive, you will be given a short health questionnaire. If you are showing symptoms of COVID-19, you will be asked to return at a later date.

Face Coverings

All visitors and all staff, even if vaccinated, are required to wear a face covering at all times. Face coverings must completely cover your mouth and nostrils and fit snugly against the sides of your face. Bandanas, neck gaiters, and face masks with exhalation valves or vents are not permitted due to the increased risk of COVID-19 transmission.
