Beginning Screenprinting

Aug
16
12:00 pm

In this class students will get to print a one-color design on paper they bring to class. Students must bring two copies on a transparency of their image. The image must be black and white only; no gray tone (half tone dots or cross hatching lines are fine but no washes) and sized as they would like it to print. If there is text, the image should be right-reading or positive-to-positive. We will discuss screens, coat screens, expose the transparencies on screens, wash them out, and print! Students will take home their prints. After taking the IPRC screen-print class, students will also have access to the IPRC screen-print studio during open studio hours.

Anti-Imperialist Art Show and Reading

Sep
5
7:00 pm

Enemigo: Imperialismo (Enemy: Imperialism) is a bilingual community art exhibit that explores the dimensions of imperialism in the world today. We invite artists and community to envision a world free of imperialism, “where people have the right to stay, freedom to move, and right to return, where liberated communities have control over their own lands, lives, and labor and where each of us is able to self-determine and express our dreams and desires” (Harsha Walia).

Imperialism takes shape in different ways and in different places, from the continued occupation of Palestine to the demonization of child migrants from Central America. U.S. imperialism continues to undermine the sovereignty of nations, and the rights of migrants, communities of color, indigenous communities, and peoples in the third world.

The inspiration for this show comes from a Chilean artist whose work is a response to the long history of US intervention in her country, where in 1973, the U.S. government funded a military coup that led to decades of disappearances, mass killings, and violent repression.

Artists around the world have responded to this violence with work that questions the legitimacy of the state and empire. Enemigo: Imperialismo points to one of our common targets in the fight for global justice and invites us to reflect on power, resistance, and self-determination.
