Collective Actions II
Remember playing the game Telephone when you were young? One person whispers a statement to the person sitting next to them, then that person whispers it to their neighbor and on and on around the circle with the last person speaking the now radically changed statement aloud.

This exhibition features the collaboration between two printmaking studios, Zea Mays Printmaking (Florence, MA) and Peregrine Press (Portland, ME) and begins with one artist from each studio responding to a secret verbal prompt. These two beginning artists will create a print that is a visual interpretation of the verbal prompt. The process will continue until 75 artists have participated over the course of five months.

Finally Got The News: The Printed Legacy of the U.S. Radical Left, 1970-1979

Exhibition and event series, January 26 – May 14, 2017
Exhibition opening: January 26th, 2017 7-10pm

Finally Got the News uncovers the hidden legacy of the radical left of the 1970s, a decade when vibrant social movements challenged racism, imperialism, patriarchy and capitalism itself. It uses original printed materials—from pamphlets to posters, flyers to record albums—to tell this politically rich and little-known story.

Reading Finally Got the News: a reading and discussion group on the 1970s Radical Left

This reading group, designed to accompany Interference Archives’ Finally Got The News exhibition, will explore some of the key liberation movements of the 1970s U.S. through the lens of written documents included in the exhibition, as well as excerpts from publications by the activists and intellectuals who led, chronicled and theorized about them. This is not a nostalgia trip, but an opportunity to critically examine some important and often-overlooked threads of our collective history in order to inform our own politics of liberation in the 21st century.

A Seedbed of New Images to Protest Trump
by Colin Moynihan

Over the weekend, an organization in Brooklyn called the Interference Archive gave away about five thousand stickers, three thousand printed posters, a thousand buttons, and almost two gallons of red and black paint that ended up silk-screened onto T-shirts, tote bags, and patches in the form of mottoes like “Don’t Mourn, Organize.” The occasion for the giveaway, Donald J. Trump’s swearing-in as President this week, was viewed with gloom by many who showed up on Saturday and Sunday.
