Saturday, Mar 18 – May 27, 2023

4912 N. Western Ave
Chicago, IL 60625

Inspired by the immediacy and wide dissemination of graffiti, wheatpasting, street signs, posters, and all forms of printed ephemera, the artists explore the democratic roots of printmaking and draw on conversations between graphic movements in Latin America and Chicago. The title pays homage to the Taller de Gráfica Popular (the People's Graphic Workshop) which was founded in Mexico during the first half of the 20th century and allowed printmakers to collaborate on projects for socio-political causes throughout the organization's lifespan.

A show by Carlos Barberena, Atlan Arceo-Witzl, & Chema Skandal!
