A Contemporary Black Matriarchal Lineage in Printmaking
September 17 – December 4, 2021
Highpoint is delighted to partner with Delita Martin and Tanekeya Word to deliver the exhibition A Contemporary Black Matriarchal Lineage in Printmaking. Curated by Tanekeya and Delita, this show centers the narratives of Black women printmakers, by Black women printmakers.
Curated by Milwaukee-based printmaker and book artist Tanekeya Word, and Huffman, Texas-based printmaker and Highpoint Editions artist Delita Martin, this marks the first national exhibition curated by Black women printmakers highlighting the experimental prints of Black women printmakers.
This exhibition will explore the narratives of 12 contemporary Black women printmakers who have shaped a place for themselves in the printmaking world. Utilizing their craft in an improvisational style, each printmaker shares matriarchal perspectives on Black interiority and narrative; bringing personal narratives into focus while paying homage to the foremothers who came before them.
