MOST WANTED: printing making, public art and political action. Works by Mark Harris October 18, 2019 - November 24, 2019 Ventures Artist Statement This show will consist of a series of linocuts of Mexican artists engaged in the public arts of painting murals and printmaking as part of the political struggles following the 1910-1920 Mexican revolution, together with linocuts of iconic leaders of the Mexican war of independence and the Mexican Revolution. They will be assembled as a group installation linking print making, public art and political action.  Individual framed prints will be against a backdrop of the same and other prints as they might have appeared in popular use as posters.  Artistic visionaries are both essential for, and dangerous to, social change. They are thus on the “most wanted” list, both as vanguards and as desperados.  The individual elements of this installation stand as separate artistic efforts. The collection of these elements is meant to engage the viewer in both a particular historical public story and provide a means of reflecting on current political struggles. Works will primarily consist of wood block or linocut relief prints, augmented by silkscreens and type set texts, all printed on paper.  Venue: Rehoboth Art League.
