In the Shadows: American Pulp Cover Art
April 13, 2017 @ 10:00 am - July 9, 2017 @ 6:00 pm
Investigating gender, crime, and other social issues in the United States, this installation explores pulp magazine and paperback cover art of the 1920s–1950s. Designed to appeal to male readers, the glossy cover illustrations of pulp featured stereotypical, often lurid, images of stereotypical gun-wielding gangsters, tough detectives, seductive or vulnerable women, and foreign enemies.
