AQUI! Issue #1 Poster, circa 1980s
It reads: ""Free? Do I look Free? I live on a leash.
My boss, the landloard, the damn bank,
IRS and the ACLU, even my kids, they
tell me what to do. Cameras watch me
buy food, the phone company lists my
friends, traffic lights decide when I can
walk and television when I can sleep.
So tell me, where is this freedom?""
""Freedom,"" he said, ""is your right to
ignore the man.""

In small print: This is AQUI!, the internationally distributed single image magazine. You can get it for $10.00. Its worth it.
During the 80s, the colorful, illustrative oversized posters of AQUI Magazine were lining the streets of New York City, sold at bookstores such as MoMA bookstore and Printed Matter, and displayed at art institutions around the world. From 1983-86, Cliff Baldwin, Julie Bradrick and Davi Det Hompson collaborated with silk-screener Norman Lassiter and published ten issues of AQUI in downtown Manhattan. AQUI provided the public with accessible quality art at the price of $10 a poster, an affordable alternative to the traditional art gallery. The tabloid-sized, folded posters unfolded into one of two sizes: 45 x 69” and 35 x 45,” and featured silk-screened original artwork by Barbara Kruger, Les Levine, Steve Gianakos, General Idea, Gilbert & George, Davi Det Hompson, Julie Bradrick and Cliff Baldwin. To this day, the posters are significant because of their experimental typographic explorations and genuine promotion of democratic art making.
Good vintage condition, creases where folded, light distressing. This piece will be folded up for shipping, no frame included.
