Black Pulp! Opens at the African-American Museum in Philadelphia

Black Pulp! opens at the African-American Museum in Philadelphia on February 2, the last venue on its three-leg tour. 

Following critical and popular success at IPCNY in the fall of 2016, Black Pulp!, curated by Mark Thomas Gibson and William Villalongo, travelled to USF Tampa/Graphicstudio and Wesleyan University in 2017. The exhibition originated at Yale University; the presentation at IPCNY expanded upon the original exhibition's investigation of African-American self-representation in 20th century magazines, journals, comic books, and other printed ephemera by including fine art prints from contemporary African-American artists.

About the exhibition.

Black Pulp! will be on view at the African-American Museum in Philadelphia from February 2 to April 29, 2018.

Shivangi Ladha, Noida, India
Artist Residency at IPCNY

Before arriving in New York in March, Shivangi interviewed and photographed victims of acid attacks in India. She responds to their stories by using acid to etch their portraits into zinc plates. In the resulting series, acid is an agent of creation as well as destruction. With these prints, she aims to raise awareness of this particular form of violence.

The New Prints artist residency is divided between IPCNY's small workshop press and our partner EFA Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop.

Thursday, Dec. 14 at 6:30PM: Screening & Discussion of Abram Room's "Jews on the Land" (1927) with Anastasiya Osipova, Ph.D.

jews on the land SHERA.png

Thursday, December 14, from 6:30-8pm: in conjunction with Russian Revolution: A Contested Legacy, join curator Masha Chlenova and scholar Anastasiya Osipova for a screening and discussion of Jews on the Land, the 1927 short film (18min) by Abram Room. The film was made with the participation of notable avant-garde figures Viktor Shklovsky, Vladimir Mayakovsky, and Lilia Brik, who were committed to the project of Jewish emancipation.

The funding for Jews on Land came from OZET (the Association for the Agricultural Settlement of Jewish Workers), which also commissioned many of the printed posters and ephemera on view in the exhibition. This agitprop film about Jewish agricultural communes in Crimea chronicles the extreme poverty of post-WWI shtetl life, and the idealistic drive to re-settle Soviet Jews into a self-governing, agricultural way of life.

This event will be the final in a series of public programs organized alongside the exhibition, which closes December 16.
