Event Description

Justseeds is a loose print collective with members working in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico and operates both as a unified collaboration of similarly minded printmakers who believe in the transformative power of personal expression in concert with collective action. This exhibition is constituted by one portfolio produced on the theme of migration. We inevitability want to re-imagine migration as a social practice not to be prevented but related to like weather. All migration starts with social relationships; they either move towards their families or communities, or more often away from them; move to help relatives or support them by leaving. People migrate because their homes stifle them, homes become burdens or they need to shed in order to have full lives and move in search of opportunity or to escape their past or to simply survive.
