About

** This event is free and open to the public. **

Join CES for the opening of our new exhibit, “Occupying Paris: 1968 and the Spaces of Protest" in the Jacek Giedrojć Gallery. This exhibit coincides with the fiftieth anniversary of the 1968 protests in Paris and leverages the spectacular collection of period protest posters held at Harvard’s Houghton Library as well as photos from Yale’s Beinecke Library. It maps out the spaces of protest along the Seine, from Nanterre to the Renault factory, from the École des Beaux Arts, which was transformed into a “people’s workshop” producing protest art round-the-clock, to the Sorbonne.

The gallery opening is preceded by a panel discussion on the ongoing legacy of the 1968 “occupation” of public space in contemporary politics. The program for the exhibit's opening day is as follows:

3:15 - 4:15 pm – Gallery opens for an exhibit preview

4:15 - 6:00 pm – Panel discussion The Struggle Continues: The Politics of Protest Since 1968

6:00 - 7:00 pm – Opening reception and toast at the Jacek E. Giedrojć Gallery
