Printed images have begun circulating in the territories that would become Spain’s American colonies since 1519 until today, when they have a strong position in contemporary Latin American artistic practices. By highlighting the long tradition of prints in Puerto Rico, Latin America and the Caribbean this panel will cover key topics such as the San Juan Print Biennial and the Poli/Gráfica Print Triennial – as nodes for Latin America printmaking and print media practices- the state of contemporary Latin American printmaking and its influence in a global scale, artists books in Cuba and prints exploring the body as memory.
