Political Posters: A Live Demonstration and Conversation with Malaquías Montoya

This event is part of the monthly Spotlight Sundays Series and has two sessions: 12—1:30 pm and 2—3:30 pm

Learn about silkscreen printing with community artist and Chicano activist Malaquías Montoya and Jose Arenas of TANA (Taller Arte del Nuevo Amanecer at University of California, Davis).

Using storytelling, and a live screen printing demonstration by the artist, Montoya will share about his own artistic journey and practice. He will offer critical reflections on the key role posters play in defining Chicano identities and shaping historical and contemporary social-political movements in California and beyond.
