What role has printmaking had in political activism and revolutionary moments in U.S. history, and how have artists responded to social injustice through poster designs? Favianna Rodriguez, whose prints are featured in the Graduate Center’s James Gallery exhibition Left Coast: California Political Art, will present her work, and archivist and librarian Lincoln Cushing will speak on the history of political prints in California. Their talks will be followed by a discussion moderated by the exhibition’s curator, Nadiah Fellah, Andrew W. Mellon Curatorial Fellow and student in the Graduate Center’s PhD Program in Art History.
