¡Printing the Revolution! Virtual Conversation Series: From Black and Brown Solidarity to Afro-Latinidad

Thursday, February 18, 2021, 6:30pm EST
Free Registration on Eventbrite

Join the Smithsonian American Art Museum for a five-part online conversation series that examines Chicanx graphics and how artists have used printmaking as a vehicle to debate larger social causes, reflect on issues of their time, and build community.

The activist and the cultural dimensions of the civil rights–era fueled solidarity movements between Black and Latinx artists, leaving a visible imprint in the graphic arts that continues to reverberate today. This panel features three artists from ¡Printing the Revolution! who have engaged with these concerns across the decades. Participants include: Malaquias Montoya, a prolific strike poster artist whose artwork defines the 1960s social serigraphy movement of the Bay Area. His artwork supports international solidarity, criminal justice reform, and the ongoing struggle for social justice.  Favianna Rodriguez, an interdisciplinary artist, cultural strategist, and activist, based in Oakland, California. Her art and praxis address migration, gender justice, climate change, racial equity, and sexual freedom. Moses Ros-Suárez, an artist, printmaker, and architect, and a member of the Dominican York Proyecto GRAFICA, a collective of Dominican American graphic artists. The panel will be moderated by Kaelyn Rodríguez, assistant professor in art history at Santa Monica College.

This conversation series features live Q&A sessions and is presented in conjunction with the landmark exhibition ¡Printing the Revolution! The Rise and Impact of Chicano Graphics, 1965 to Now.
