Que Conste / For the Record Exhibition
POCOAPOCO at Highpoint Center for Printmaking
POCOAPOCO’s new exhibition hosted at Highpoint Center for Printmaking features work by eight, Oaxacan, multidisciplinary artists whose varying mediums and perspectives demonstrate the critical and widespread presence of printmaking in Oaxaca, Mexico. Utilizing print as an opportunity to unite their practice and artistic voices, the artists in this exhibition connect around a shared desire to critique and communicate the rapid transformations of their territory, city, and home. Que Conste / For the Record challenges the limits of the medium stemming from possibilities provided by language, playing with the translation and definitions of print from English (printmaking – an artistic process) to Spanish (grabado – recorded or engraved).
Highpoint Center for Printmaking is dedicated to the mission of making printmaking accessible, creating educational resources, projects, and opportunities, and continuing the practice of traditional printmaking techniques. This multidisciplinary and cross-cultural partnership gives a unique opportunity for both Highpoint and POCOAPOCO to discuss how printmaking translates both literally and physically across cultures, backgrounds, and creative practices.
Highpoint Center for Printmaking is pleased to present Que Conste / For the Record, and we invite the community to join us for a public opening reception on Friday, June 17th, 2022 from 7 – 9 PM. Artwork will be on display from June 17th- July 16th, 2022.
