Artist Perspectives with Soledad Salamé: Printmaking as a Democratic Medium

This event is hosted by The Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation at The 8th Floor and is free and open to the public. Tea, light refreshments and good conversation will be provided.

Salamé will be in conversation with Jennie Hirsh, Professor of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Maryland Institute College of Art, about her work. This conversation will tackle printmaking as a platform for creative protest, looking at Salamé’s process and documentation of the 2016 Women’s March, as well as other topics outside of the United States.
