Street artist Shepard Fairey became a household name in 2008, when his posters for the Obama presidential campaign using the ‘Hope’ slogan became ubiquitous. Now, he’s designed the movie poster for a new documentary premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival this week, Let the Fury Have the Hour, in which he also stars. Named for a song by The Clash, the film explores how art and activism intertwined in the post-Reagan 80s and early 90s. Musicians, artists, and commentators including Joe Strummer of The Clash, Eve Ensler, Chuck D (Public Enemy), Lewis Black, and Billy Bragg are featured in the film. Check out the poster for below and follow our Tribeca Film Festival coverage all week.
