El Nopal Press: Cross Border Discourses through Print
Organized in association with IFPDA, this symposia presented by the Association of Print Scholars explores El Nopal Press (Los Angeles), founded by Francesco Siqueiros in 1990, and distinguished by its focus on the work of artists who explore border issues, especially conceptual manifestations of the border, and the complex cultural relationships and exchanges that exist between Mexico and the United States. Featuring a virtual studio tour, as well as prepared slides of notable prints, editions, and artists with whom he has collaborated, Siqueiros will discuss his career, which includes his early work at Cirrus Editions, and the myriad of experiences and influences that led him to his present work at El Nopal.
