Various artists/makers

Not on view

The prints in Continuum were created by seven members and former members of Black Women of Print—Leslie Diuguid, LaToya M. Hobbs, Jennifer Mack-Watkins, Delita Martin, Angela Pilgrim, Stephanie Santana, and Tanekeya Word—to mark the one-year anniversary of the collective. Word, who founded Black Women of Print and curated the portfolio, envisioned creating a more equitable future within the discipline of printmaking. In addition to providing support to and advancing work by contemporary Black women printmakers, the collective promotes the history and work of Black women artists from earlier generations. The prints in Continuum honor and engage the legacy of Emma Amos, Belkis Ayón, Margaret Taylor Burroughs, Elizabeth Catlett, Wanda Ewing, Alison Saar, and Betye Saar through multiple means, including visual elements, subjects, and techniques. Several of these artists also make reference to relatives and children in their prints, emphasizing connection between generations.
