Panel "Visible Figures: Black Womanhood in Printmaking" chaired by Tanekeya Word, founder, Black Women of Print.
Historically, within the United States of America, Black women have been stereotyped, placed in the shadow archives or erased from visual arts, including printmaking which is recognized as a democratic discipline. This panel offers an emic counter narrative, given by Black women, of their praxis within the discipline of printmaking. It also introduces what curator Erin Christovale asserts as a "legacy praxis" where the founding members of Black Women of Print expand on the works of their foremothers through their artistic practice and theory.
