SYMPOSIUM
5 June 2018

Speakers will look at the ways printmaking engaged with and often challenged American society and politics from the 1960s onwards. Special attention will be given to print workshops, collaborative practices, and the ways in which the print media encouraged art activism. Focusing on the specificity of materiality and creative process, the symposium seeks to examine how the various layers of these works could be socially and/or politically encoded.

Speakers: Stephen Coppel (The British Museum), Jacqueline Francis (California College of the Arts), Elisabeth Lebovici (art critic), Richard Shiff (University of Texas, Austin), Laurence Schmidlin (Musée cantonal des Beaux-Arts de Lausanne), Susan Tallman (School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Art in Print) and Hervé Vanel (The American University of Paris).
