I was selected to be part of the virtual exhibition titled Make Ready for the Revolution organized by Wendy Partridge, Erin Adair, and Bob Kelemen for the 2020 Mid America Print Council conference. The exhibition is hosted virtually through Zygote Press.
Make Ready for the Revolution, a letterpress exhibition on a virtual display is embedded in a history of resistance that goes back half a century. While 2020 at Kent State on the 50th anniversary of May 4th Shootings would have been a powerful time to have the MAPC conference, the world-changing events of this year are certainly fertile ground for expression and revolution. With that in mind, we would like to gauge interest in hosting a virtual exhibition of letterpress work.
