Black Printed Matter: Wolfman Resident Leila Weefur w/ Sam Vernon: Two Queer Black Women printmakers in conversation

Black Printed Matter, a project archiving and documenting Black printmakers, typographers, designers + in the U.S.: Currently in residence at E.M. Wolfman.

Leila Weefur & Sam Vernon: Two Queer Black Women printmakers in conversation. As printmaking has been dominated by predominately White males, this project seeks to amplify the presence of Black identified printmakers in the United States. Weefur and Vernon will present thoughts and works that explore key questions around the history and culture of printmaking: What is the importance of the archive? How does printed matter function in digital space? How do we as Black artists negotiate our relationship to printmaking? Is print culture oppressive?
