WHAT: An art jam and book release party featuring live printmaking, music, and refreshments. WHEN: Wednesday, June 11, 6-10 pm WHERE: CounterPULSE, 1310 Mission St. (near 9th), San Francisco, CA 94103 WHO: Reproduce & Revolt Co-Editor, Favianna Rodriguez, Taller Tupac Amaru (Oakland), San Francisco Print Collective (SF), Political Gridlock (Alameda), and Chaman Visions (Los Angeles) On the evening of Wednesday, June 11th, artists, activists, and art lovers will gather to celebrate the release of the new book, Reproduce and Revolt (Soft Skull Press / Counterpoint; $19.95; 978-0-9796636-1-1). Activism depends on design to capture imaginations and spread a message. Reproduce and Revolt not only documents some of the best activist design work of the past few years, it shows readers how to do it themselves. Political artists from the Bay Area will host an evening of live poster printing, political art displays, and other art making to promote a message of social justice. Reproduce and Revolt features the work of artists from over a dozen countries. The collection contains hundreds of high-quality illustrations and graphics about social justice and political activism for use on flyers, posters, t-shirts, brochures, stencils, and any other graphic elements of social causes. The graphics are bold, easy to reproduce, and available to reproduce without permission. The book offers clear instructions on how to utilize the images to improve the effectiveness of visual campaigns. It also contains a short history of political graphics, highlighting the vital and powerful role that graphics have played in social movements all over the world – serving as tools to inspire, mobilize, and transform communities. An unprecedented contribution to contemporary social movements, Reproduce & Revolt highlights how artists around the globe are responding to some of the most pressing issues of the 21st century, including topics such as gender inequality, environmental injustice, prison reform, queer liberation, immigration, globalization, and labor rights. Featuring artists from around the world, including the United States, Mexico, Argentina, France, Germany, and Canada, this collection offers a moving account of struggle, determination, and resilience. Reproduce & Revolt will appeal to art lovers – and activists - of all ages.
