FRIDAY, JUNE 28, 2019 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Utopia/ Dystopia is a portfolio of fine art prints created in the form of a deck of 52 playing cards. Curated by Artist and Printmaker, Miyo Stevens-Gandara, twenty-six artists were invited to create two cards for the deck to create their interpretation of utopia and dystopia. The deck of cards allows the project to bring many different artists and styles together creating one unified artwork- a full deck, redefining a traditional portfolio. The concept of a deck of cards is intended to reference many things- games of chance, luck, fortune, war, solitude, precarious situations (house of cards), magic, empire, and divination. It serves as a container for many ideas, and each artist has chosen their own direction.

Join Curator and Artist, Miyo Stevens-Gandara, for a Utopia/Dystopia panel discussion on June 28, 2019 from 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM (during the People’s Printmaking Week), along other artists in the exhibition, to discuss their process and approach to a portfolio with a of fine art prints created in the form of a deck of 52 playing cards on view.
