This panel discussion addresses the Latinx ethos in contemporary printmaking. The Latino, or “Latinx” identity, is inherently connected to Texas history and has been historically stigmatized through print materials. We will talk about the history of prints as a tool for social influence and the ethics behind the printmaker’s intentions. The theme of Texchange is connected to the Latino heritage within the Tejano population that identifies with both U.S. and Mexican cultures.
