In collaboration with Jacob Meders (Machoopda/Maidu), assistant professor in the New College of Interdisciplinary Arts and Science at Arizona State University, the Labriola Center will be a part of a workshop called "Print and the Protest." This workshop introduces students to the archives at the Labriola Center and the art of printmaking. Jacob Meders has used archives to inform his printmaking, where he reexamines documentations on Native peoples that are stereotypical and deploys bookforms and prints as a vehicle to challenge new perceptions of Native Americans. In 2011 Jacob established WarBird Press, a fine art printmaking studio that he operates as the master printmaker in Phoenix, AZ. He possesses a BFA in painting with a minor in printmaking from Savannah College of Art and Design and a MFA in printmaking at Arizona State University. In this workshop, participants will have the opportunity to create a print using a printing press and the research opportunities available at the Labriola Center for Indigenous creative works. You can extend your printmaking learning by taking Professor Meders' class in spring 2023, course IAP 394 number 27529.
