¡Printing the Revolution! Virtual Conversation Series: The Legacy of Printmaking

Thursday, March 25, 2021, 6:30 – 8:30pm EDT

Chicanx artists and print centers have welcomed, nurtured, and collaborated with non-Chicanx artists from the early civil rights era to today, creating a long legacy of influence and support across communities. Join us for a virtual conversation that explores the impact of this legacy and unites artists who are integral members of the Chicanx print movement. Panelists include Jos Sances, a San Francisco–based artist and master printer, who co-founded Mission Gráfica in 1980, founded Alliance Graphics in 1989, and is a founding member of the performance group The Great Tortilla Conspiracy; and Pepe Coronado, founder of the Coronado Print Studio and a founding member of the Dominican York Proyecto GRAFICA, a collective of Dominican American artists devoted to printmaking and the exploration of Dominican diasporic history and culture. This virtual conversation is moderated by Tatiana Reinoza, specialist in Latinx printmaking and assistant professor of art history at the University of Notre Dame. Reinoza is also a contributor to the ¡Printing the Revolution! catalogue. 

This program is the third in a five-part online conversation series that examines Chicanx graphics and how artists have used printmaking to debate larger social causes, reflect on issues of their time, and build community. Hear from artists, scholars, and activists about the Chicanx graphics movement, from civil rights–era prints to today’s digital landscape.
