November 8-10
Print Work As Collective Work
We’re excited to be included in a discussion with Jovanna Jones (Black Studies Reading Room) + Kimi Hanuaer, Valentina Cabezas, & Bomin Jeon (Press Press).

This conversation will focus on platform-making that highlights and centers around the creative contributions and cultural production of immigrants and people of color in print. Each of these groups & projects work collectively to study, research, engage in archives, and produce new work that critically assesses racial and cultural politics in print culture and creates new models of production and distribution. Thinking about publishing as the act of gathering a public, panelists will reflect on their process in working intentionally and collaboratively with this as a goal. This conversation is in conjunction with Bookworks, an exhibition on artist-made books on view at Tufts University Art Galleries with an installation by Press Press.

Screening: Black Horror

Free Event!
Please join Print Ain’t Dead for a screening of Ganja and Hess (1973), Los Espookys (2019) and Son of Inangi (1940). 

A newlywed couple is visited by a mad doctor who harbors a secret about the wife's father.

Flirting with the conventions of blaxploitation and horror, Bill Gunn’s revolutionary independent film Ganja & Hess is a highly stylized and utterly original treatise on sex, religion, and African American identity. Duane Jones (Night of the Living Dead) stars as anthropologist Hess Green, who is stabbed with an ancient ceremonial dagger by his unstable assistant (director Bill Gunn), bestowing upon him the blessing of immortality... and the curse of an unquenchable thirst for blood.

Los Espookys follows the adventures of Renaldo, a horror and gore enthusiast who forms a unique business that conjures thrills and chills for a variety of clients
