Print media and printing have both served as a locus for dissent, resistance and rebellion. The Bay Area has a long history of voicing resistance through the creation of works on paper, from the Black Panther posters to the silkscreens of the Mission District's Mission Gráfica Printmaking Studio. Second wave feminism saw the creation of many presses, including publishers of queer and other underrepresented voices.
Join us for this evening event showcasing in-progress work by current Mills College "Freedom of the Presses" seminar students. Professor Kathleen Walkup's students will share some of their current coursework with attendees while exploring larger ideas of resistance and dissent via works on paper. Presenting students include Natalie Davis, Joey Gage, Grace Patterson, Dalia Quezada, Dio Ruiz, Emma Sugarbaker, and Mara Thwaites-albers.
