There will be a public opening reception of Uprisings on Friday, February 10th, 2017 from 7-10 pm. Labour-themed prints by the Justseeds Artists’ Cooperative will be on sale at the opening, and for the duration of the exhibition.
Originally a one-week exhibition featuring Justseeds which ran concurrent with the 2013 Southern Graphics Conference in Milwaukee, Uprisings: Images of Labour is a series that for Justseeds members, was a return to the essence of what brought many of them in Justseeds together: printing on paper, learning from each other, and sharing resources. This project reflects a variety of conceptual and aesthetic approaches to thinking through labour, from specific struggles rooted locally in Wisconsin, to incarcerated labour, to a reimagining of traditional IWW slogans, such as “Labor Creates All Wealth” and “_____ of the World Unite! You Have Nothing to Lose But Your ____.”
