James Victore. Use a Condom/ Bunnies. 1997

James Victore Use a Condom/ Bunnies 1997

  • Not on view

Victore attributes his compulsion to question authority to his childhood on a military base during the Vietnam War. After dropping out of art school, Victore began producing self-financed posters for nonprofit organizations devoted to Native Americans, AIDS awareness, and race issues.

Victore made two Use a Condom posters for a group exhibition at DDD Gallery in Osaka, Japan. The two reasons to use a condom—to prevent pregnancy and the spread of disease—are communicated symbolically with bunnies and flies.
