About this Event

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. Hear from artists, scholars, and activists about the Chicanx graphics movement, from civil rights–era prints to today’s digital landscape. This series emphasizes cross-generational mentorships and an expanded view of American art and the history of graphic arts, featuring women, Afro Latinx, LGBTQ+, and other previously marginalized voices.

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. This program series received generous support from the Latino Initiatives Pool, administered by the Smithsonian Latino Center.
