Met Print Study Day: Prints and Politics

Online event: 9 October 2020

The Department of Drawings and Prints at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in association with the IFPDA is pleased to announce its fifth annual Print Study Day. The symposium typically coincides with the opening of the Print Fair in mid-October; but, with the Fair going virtual this year and the week of programming extending into a month-long celebration (October 7—November 1, 2020), this year’s program will take place on Friday, October 9, 12pm EST, via Zoom. The theme of this year’s Print Study Day is Prints and Politics.

Speakers include:
Maureen Warren, Curator of European and American Art at the Krannert Art Museum, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. She will discuss “Fake News: Dutch Broadsides as Attack Ads, Propaganda, and Lying Pictures in the Seventeenth Century.”

Allison M. Stagg, independent scholar, and former Drawings and Prints fellow at The Met. She will discuss “Campaigning for the Presidency: Political humor in Early American Caricature Prints.”

And speaking about their exhibition, Printing Revolution, which opens on November 20, 2020, E. Carmen Ramos, Acting Chief Curator and Curator of Latinx Art, and Claudia Zapata, Curatorial Assistant of Latinx Art, at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, will discuss “Urgent Images: Chicanx Graphic Arts, 1965—Now.”
