The Saint Louis Art Museum presents this unique opportunity to hear from artists, printers, publishers, and scholars about the state of printmaking in the United States over the past six decades. The cross-pollination of ideas between these individuals has tested boundaries and resulted in unconventional formats that match the challenges of emerging subject matter. This multifaceted event will include lectures, panels, and interactive breakout sessions featuring national and local presenters who are variously engaged in the world of printmaking.

The symposium is held in conjunction with the exhibition Graphic Revolution: American Prints 1960 to Now (November 11, 2018–February 3, 2019).

Symposium keynote lecture:

He will discuss his concepts of “reverse anthropology” and “reverse modernism,” while also reflecting on the role of print media in his art. This lecture can be attended as a stand-alone event or as part of the symposium.
