Black Women of Print Speaker Series:
Monday, October 12, 5-6 pm EST
Over the coming months, MGC is hosting a series of seven online talks from the members of Black Women of Print. For our second talk, we will hear from Jennifer Mack-Watkins, a printmaker whose work explores the limitations that societal norms and biases enact on individuals. She works primarily in screenprinting and Mokuhanga. The artist will speak about her work, her experiences at MGC, and her travels in Japan and Hawaii to deepen her Mokuhanga practice. Mack-Watkins has exhibited widely and her work is included in public collections, including the Newark Public Library. In the spring of 2021, she will present her first solo museum exhibition at The Brattleboro Museum, Brattleboro, Vermont. Mack-Watkins earned her MFA from Pratt Institute and an MA in Art Education from Tufts University. She currently lives and works in New Jersey.
This project is made possible with funds from the NYSCA Electronic Media/Film in Partnership with Wave Farm: Media Arts Assistance Fund, with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
