Highpoint Center for Printmaking says
Highpoint proudly announces its 12th international exhibition, Sus Voces: Women Printmakers from Mexico, on view February 5–March 27, 2016 (public reception Friday, March 4, 6:30-9pm).

Curated by Maria Cristina Tavera, the exhibition will feature a variety of prints by nine artists living and working in Mexico: Adriana Calatayud Morán, Rossana Cervantes Vasquez, Edith Chávez, Mercedes López Calvo, Diana Morales Galicia, Paulina Olascoaga Chávez, Daniela Ramirez, Jimena Ramos, and América Rodriguez.

Sus Voces shares the unrelenting voices of nine contemporary women artists who explore their perspectives on the human condition in Mexico through artistic expression. The prints on view are distinctly contemporary, made with a wide range of traditional printmaking techniques – primarily relief, lithography, and intaglio. Thought-provoking subject matter sheds light on the daily routines, political concerns, personal philosophies, and senses of personal identity in this group of artists whose race and gender relegate them to a group often under-represented in the art world.

This exhibition and public reception have been organized as part of the Guerrilla Girls Twin Cities Takeover. Between January and March (2016), more than thirty arts and cultural organizations in Minneapolis/ St. Paul and surrounding cities will join the collective roar for change.

The public is invited to a celebratory reception at Highpoint on Friday, March 4 from 6:30–9pm, which will coincide with other Guerrilla Girls events and appearances. Sus Voces curator and featured artists Edith Chávez and Diana Morales Galicia will be present to discuss their work.

Special thanks to Humberto Valdez, Taller de Ia Imagen del Rinoceronte TIR.
