Ceylon Tea: Product of European Exploitation!

San Francisco: Galeria de la Raza, 1972. Original color silkscreen print, 66 x 51 cm. One of an edition of approximately 75 printed. SIGNED AND DATED IN 1972 by the artist. Just about Fine and unframed. Only a couple of tiny wrinkles at the corners with three tiny pin holes along the top edge. Garcia's work is a challenge to social and political structure. Co-opting familiar images from popular culture, Garcia's work articulates themes of social justice, human rights and economic exploitation. "Ceylon tea" provides a sarcastic "deep reading" of Lipton's tea package...contrasted with a supergraphic from the original product label, Garcia hits us with the provocative destroy any naivete about the consumer relationship to foreign labor." (Cushing and Drescher, Agitate! Educate! Organize!) Printed by the artist while he was a member of the San Francisco Poster Workshop, the Galeria de la Raza, Third World Communications, and Ediciones Pocho Che. A beautiful example of Garcia's early work. [Book #114142]
