Multiplicity, Intersectionality, and Identity in Printmaking
SGC International Affiliate Session
Chair: Haley Takahashi, University of Tennessee, Knoxville
Print media is intrinsically associated with the multiple. For some, this practice takes the form of an edition, a body of work, or mass production to disseminate information. For others, the multiple is symbolic of a multifaceted identity, or part of a multidisciplinary artistic practice. In Kathryn Reeves’ 1999 essay “The Re- Visioning of Printmaking,” she calls for a new understanding of print through the psychoanalysis and semantics of print methods, processes, and history. Through feminist ideologies, Reeves suggests that print has been “othered” due to its coding as female. In 2023, many artists are expanding and “revising” our understanding of print beyond its historical context through a contemporary and nuanced approach to identity and sociology. For this panel, I am seeking artists applying print to represent multiplicity and intersectionality in their work. This could include artists who contend with race, nationality, gender, LGBTQ+ identity, or marginalization within their practice. This panel also applies to the artists who blur the hard lines between mediums and use print as part of a multidisciplinary art-making approach.
Submit through the SECAC Portal to apply.
