Shareable Graphics

Shareable graphics are digital images disseminated across the internet and social media platforms. Artists distribute these works to aid in solidarity efforts, political protest, and social advocacy. Some shareable graphics are meant to continue their circulation in physical form, with artists providing a higher quality image for people to download and print. Others primarily exist in online forms geared toward inciting dialogue and creating a wider networked distribution. At no cost to audiences, shareable graphics function as did early protest posters in efforts to gain momentum for social causes and assert the presence of marginalized groups. However, in this digital space, online dialogue emerges between users and graphics that offers unprecedented exposure, user interactivity, and interpretation.
