SGCI 2022 Annual Conference: Madison Our Shared Future
March 16, 2022 @ 9:00 am - March 19, 2022 @ 9:00 pm
The SGC International annual conference brings together over 1,000 printmakers and arts professionals in all stages of their careers. We look forward to bringing our membership back to the Midwest!
The Art Department and the School of Education are honored to bridge the international and national SGCI community with the dynamic printmaking legacy of UW-Madison. The UW-Madison printmaking area faculty wish to acknowledge that we are living and working within the ancestral lands of the Ho-Chunk Nation. Our future is understood through our past.
The Art Department faculty and students are diverse. Diversity is a source of strength, creativity, and innovation for UW-Madison. We value the contributions of each person and respect the profound ways their identity, culture, background, experience, status, abilities, and opinion enrich the university community.
Our Shared Future printmaking conference is a call to artists to consider how our studio practice makes culture and knowledge visible through socially engaged graphic arts of the past, present, and future.
Printmaking can deepen our understanding of the world, inherently challenge systems of oppression, and can push against histories of colonization, unwarranted violence, and systemic racism.
Artists share in the responsibility to shape our future. The 2022 SGCI printmaking conference is implicitly guided by the social and environmental ecology of a place and seeks to affirm the role of graphic arts within Our Shared Future.
