Arquetopia Puebla Printmaking Residency

Deadline: November 25, 2018

The Mexican printmaking tradition has a complicated relation with the development of modern and contemporary art in Mexico. The work of José Guadalupe Posada and Taller de Gráfica Popular set the foundation of such a complex tradition, by rendering contentious realities mixed with current events, and political messages. This strong political legacy has not only influenced other forms of art but also set the tone to the tense and contradictory relationship between art and social activism in Mexico. Nevertheless, printmaking, as a creative space, remains as the base of artistic political activity. Given the accessibility and collaborative nature of the techniques, the print shop in Mexico is a dynamic grass-root space where the discussion of social issues is very relevant. From relief printing, to intaglio, screen-printing, and lithography, the abundant artistic output is ideal for cultural and artistic exchanges.

The Printmaking Residency is a self-directed production residency that offers the unique opportunity to produce work on-site at Arquetopia. The techniques offered are intaglio, linoleum, woodcut, polyester plate, silkscreen and the unique opportunity of working with a specific lithography stone from Mexico. Maximum dimensions of the lithography printing press are 27 X 19 inches and of the etching press are 24 X 45 inches. This residency is for experienced printmakers only. No instruction is provided.
