Border Pop: Chicano Printmaking in the NAFTA Era
Monday, February 25th
4:00pm - FREE
The Department of Romance Languages & Linguistics and the Critical Race & Ethnic Studies Program are proud to welcome Tatiana Reinoza to UVM. She is an art historian and independent curator who specializes in contemporary Latinx art. Her monograph on Latinx printmaking, from which she will share an excerpt, will be the first of its kind to document the Latinx graphic arts movement and its role in mediating identity discourses, its relationship to American art, and specifically its contributions to the U.S. collaborative press movement. Her work dwells on how these contemporary artists return to the materiality of the printed medium at a time that sees the rise of the digital, and likewise how their experiments respond to the territorial reorganization that accompanied the geopolitics of neoliberalism. She is also at work on an edited anthology that commemorates the fiftieth anniversary of Self Help Graphics, the flagship Chicano graphic workshop based in East Los Angeles.
