posters for the people


photo of sunny day with a light blue sky, screenprinted posters hang on a clothesline attached to a big tree with a birdhouse. the posters have a figure, hair in a low bun, holding up a raised fist, under the fist it says β€œrise, resist, remember”.

this summer i learned how to screenprint with my kasama in Gabriela Oakland πŸ’œ


so much gratitude to Melanie Cervantes & Jesus Barraza of Dignidad Rebelde for their brilliance, passion, & thoughtfulness in teaching virtually thru this pandemic. they curated an incredibly radical curriculum on the history of screen-printing & poster-making. i learned about so many artists, collectives, and movement history that never reached me when i was in art school.
