Show Information:

Curated by Josh McPhee of JustSeeds.org

5 + 5 Gallery, in collaboration with Josh MacPhee, is proud to present a major exhibition of politically and socially engaged printmaking at Phinney Center Gallery. The exhibit showcases print art which uses themes of social justice and global equity to engage community members in political conversation. Originally exhibit in conjuction with Seattle Print Arts at the Phinney Center Gallery in Seattle, the show has been expanded for this Brooklyn engagement to include even more printmakers.

The exhibition features work by over 180 artists from the US and around the world. It is curated by Josh MacPhee, a Troy, NY-based artist, activist and author most recently of Stencil Pirates: A Global Study of the Street Stencil, published on Soft Skull Press. The exhibition includes work by artists who are primarily activists, as well as artists whose work may not always be politically motivated, but who wanted to respond to the monumental trends and events of our times. We are excited to have such a large diversity of voices in the show!

Paper Politics presents a breathtaking tour of the many modalities of printing: relief, intaglio, lithography, silkscreen, collagraph, monotype, photography. In addition to these techniques, we are delighted to include in the show finely crafted stencils and street printing, traditional media used to convey political thought.

A 56-page full-color catalogue documenting the Seattle Print Arts exhibition is available for sale JustSeeds.org The catalogue contains all the work in the show, as well as essays by Josh MacPhee and Deborah Caplow, Lecturer in the Division of Art History at the University of Washington, on political art and printmaking.
