Sus Voces: Women Printmakers from Mexico curated by Maria Cristina Tavera

February 5, 2016 - March 26, 2016

Highpoint Center for Printmaking proudly announces its 12th international exhibition, Sus Voces: Women Printmakers from Mexico. Curated by Maria Cristina Tavera, the exhibition will feature a variety of prints by nine artists living and working in Mexico: Adriana Calatayud Morán, Rossana Cervantes Vasquez, Edith Chávez, Mercedes López Calvo, Diana Morales Galicia, Paulina Olascoaga Chávez, Daniela Ramierez, Jimena Ramos, and América Rodriguez.

Sus Voces shares the unrelenting voices of nine contemporary women artists who explore their perspectives on the human condition in Mexico through artistic expression. The artworks on view are distinctly contemporary, but have been made with a wide range of traditional printmaking techniques – primarily relief, lithography, and intaglio. Thought-provoking subject matter throughout this fascinating collection of prints sheds light on the daily routines, political concerns, personal philosophies, and senses of personal identity in this group of artists whose race and gender relegate them to a group traditionally under-represented in the art world.
