Disaster Relief

Event Type: Themed Portfolios

In Disaster Relief artists will come together in the form of a themed exchange portfolio to address issues of climate change and the myriad problems associated with it. From rising oceans, temperatures, and storm frequency, to food inequities, refugee crisis, and perpetual war driven by a reliance on fossil fuel; artists will look at these complex issues with an eye towards solution and political solidarity. Using the site of Puerto Rico and its peoples resiliency in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria as inspiration and a beacon of hope, artists will create prints and build a network across distance to engage in a critical discussion around this theme.

Portfolio Details: twenty-five (25) artists
Edition Size: thirty (30). This will account for the two required SGCI portofolios, an exhibition copy, a sales copy which will be donated to Arte al Rescate and a copy to be placed in the California College of the Arts Hamaguchi Print Archive.
Paper Size: 11×15
Media: Any reproducable media with at least one hand-printed process. Variable editions are acceptable. Focus will be on working in sustainable, non-toxic, and zero waste print mediums, but will not be an absolute requirement.
Cost: $10.00 plus return shipping to San Francisco Bay Area
Due date for prints: February 1, 2020
