In this course, students will survey the rich history of women printmakers’ work, past and present. Through weekly lectures, videos, podcasts, readings, and a closed discussion group on MGC’s website (students only), we will discuss and unpack the work of emerging, lesser-known, and established women-identifying printmakers and how their work and contributions have impacted the world of printmaking at large. We will also pay significant attention to women-run printshops, residencies, and ateliers as a way of connecting history with contemporary opportunities for women in the field of print. Subjects will include (not limited to): artists from the Grosvenor School and Atelier 17, Virginia Myers, Elizabeth Catlett, The Women’s Studio Workshop, Mixit Print Studios, and Black Women of Print. 

 

Please note this is a lecture and discussion course.
