Exhibition Opening, Coffee with SMP, Blacklight Dance Party!
Trazando las Líneas / Tracing the Lines Exhibition Opening
May 25th, 7-9pm
St. Michael's Printshop
Trazando las Líneas / Tracing the Lines is a portfolio co-organized by Corinne Teed and Dr. Sandy Plácido, a historian of Puerto Rican social movements. The prints in this portfolio act as a testament to the survival, healing and rebuilding of Puerto Rican communities and connects to other communities surviving the devastations of climate change and global capitalism, recognizing the role that printmaking and graphic arts have played in struggles for autonomy and survival.
The portfolio asks how can our prints document the intertwined social and graphic histories of Puerto Rico, Mexico, the United States, and beyond while also motivating new collaborations that center healing amidst crisis? Racial capitalism has created similar forms of precarity in places such as San Juan, the Bronx, and Mexico City, and the portfolio will reflect on a shared past, present, and future.
The portfolio was partly organized as a fundraiser for the Center for Embodied Pedagogy in Action CEPA @descolonizapr
