Mildred Beltré, Azabache (2016), silkscreen and marker, 11 x 15 inches. Printed and published by the artist, unlimited varied edition.
Mildred Beltré is a Brooklyn-based, American, multi-disciplinary artist; printmaking is among one of several techniques she uses to explore issues of political identity and social justice in works that combine figurative, text-based, and abstract imagery. Beltré describes her most recent solo exhibition as an exploration of “the expectations of what ‘feeling colored’ might be” (“Science of the World,” June 7-July 29, Kentler International Drawing Space). Other bodies of work have investigated social change and political movements, both historical and fictional. Beltré is professor at the University of Vermont and has exhibited her work extensively throughout the United States and abroad. She has been awarded numerous residencies over the years. Her work is included in the Special Collections of the Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn, NY and the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, among others. She is also co-founder of the Brooklyn Hi-Art! Machine, an ongoing and constantly evolving public art project in collaboration with Oasa Duverney exploring community through artmaking on Brooklyn sidewalks.
