Event Details:

Printing Protest explores printmaking as a means for the artistic expression of social and political protest from the sixteenth century through the present. Conversations between prints from different historical, geographical, and cultural contexts investigate continuities and evolutions in the use of prints as a tool for social criticism. Stanford students selected the included prints from the Cantor Arts Center collection.

This exhibition is organized by students in the seminar Printing Protest: The Artist as Social Critic, instructed by Natalia Lauricella, PhD, Postdoctoral Teaching Fellow, Department of Art & Art History, Stanford University. We gratefully acknowledge support from the Lynn Krywick Gibbons Gallery Exhibitions Fund at the Cantor Arts Center.
