These Nested Aphorisms
FROM THE ARTIST:
Audrey G. Bennett was one of 71 designers invited to participate in the AIGA’s Get Out the Vote: Empowering the Women’s Vote Posters this year. Of the 65 posters created, her poster, titled “These Nested Aphorisms,” was one of 19 featured in PRINT Magazine’s “19 Posters Commemorating the Women’s Suffrage” this month. Aug. 18th marked the centennial of the 19th Amendment’s ratification, granting women the right to vote in 1920. In designing this poster, I aimed to harness the power of the cultural capital inherited from my ancestors and predecessors to galvanize mass voting on election day.
