Visible Figures: Black Womanhood in Printmaking
Members of Black Women of Print will be presenting Visible Figures: Black Womanhood in Printmaking at Mid America Print Council’s 2020 Remote Symposium.
Historically, within the United States of America, Black women have been stereotyped, placed in the shadow archives or erased from visual arts, including printmaking which is recognized as a democratic discipline. This panel offers an emic counter narrative, given by Black women, of their praxis within the discipline of printmaking. It also introduces what curator Erin Christovale asserts as a "legacy praxis" where the founding members of Black Women of Print expand on the works of their foremothers through their artistic practice and theory.
