Podcast: An Interview with Anthea Black
March 02, 2010
Finn Grey ‘10 interviews Anthea Black, who is in residence at Museum of Contemporary Craft in partnership with Pacific Northwest College of Art from February 19–March 10.
Black, a Canadian printmaker known for her subversive postering campaigns, produces an edition of two-sided posters deployed across Portland in collaboration with local printmaking students and queer youth. Black designed the poster with collaborator Wednesday Lupypciw to be produced as an edition with the printmaking students of Christy Wyckoff at Pacific Northwest College of Art (PNCA). On one side of the poster is the text “CALLING ALL NEXXXT GENERATION MIND INFLUENCERS:” On the other side of the poster is the text “ARE YOU READY TO SERIOUSLY EFF WITH PUBLIC DECENCY?!?”
In this interview Black talks about her collaboration with Christy Wyckoff’s printmaking class; activism and labor; using craft in public spaces; public decency; queer art and appropriation; rewriting the story; and postering in Texas.
Anthea Black will be performing at the Museum of Contemporary Craft, 724 Northwest Davis Street, during First Thursday, March 4, 6—8 pm. Free and open to the public.
