Resisting the Remarque

Speaking Engagement

Resisting the Remarque

Southern Graphics Council Conference, Philidelphia, Pennsylvania

I was treated to the company of Libby Clarke, Jesse Goldstein, and Favianna Rodriguez in a panel I moderated entitled Resisting the Remarque. These three individuals brought their distinct approaches to engaging with the activist print and its history to this discussion of how political print work fits into both the realm of contemporary printmaking and the sociopolitical landscape.
