Staying Power

Image by Mary Tremonte

Migration Now! was a 2012 print portfolio co-produced by Justseeds and CultureStrike (CultureStrike is now part of the Center for Cultural Power) which explored the social, cultural, and emotional facets of immigration.

“Staying Power” was the name of a Queers Against Deportation dance party that Tremonte DJed in Philadelphia in late 2011 and the name resonated with her. Sunflowers, with their deep roots, represent immigrants grounded in their communities. The artist also showcases families she knows who have been separated by U.S. immigration policy. Tremonte’s piece also depicts resistance to detainment and deportation, represented by Jovenes Sin Nombres, a Latino youth arts/activist group in Pittsburgh.

March 4, 2015

After a long hiatus, I am reviving my Rad Teen Print of the Week series as Rad Post-Teen Print of the Week, to share the amazing work from university students and other post-teens that I’ve been working with here in Toronto. I first forayed into this zone a few years ago with Lauren Jurysta’s Free Pussy Riot silkscreen.
