¡Printing the Revolution! The Rise and Impact of Chicano Graphics, 1965 to Now

This exhibition explores the rise of Chicano graphics within early social movements and the ways in which Chicanx artists have advanced innovative printmaking practices attuned to social justice. ¡Printing the Revolution! features more than 120 works drawn from Smithsonian American Art Museum’s pioneering collection of Latinx art; it will be the first to unite historic civil rights era prints alongside works by contemporary printmakers and the first to consider how Chicanx mentors, print centers and networks nurtured other artists.
