Migration Now! is a limited-edition portfolio of handmade prints addressing migrant issues from Justseeds & CultureStrike. In addition to the members of Justseeds, participating artists include former Minister of Culture for the Black Panther Party Emory Douglas, and Undocumented DREAM Act agitators, Julio Salgado and Felipe Baeza. The exhibit will also feature a selection of graphics from No One Is Illegal Toronto, Justseeds portfolios on resource extraction and prisons, and the Imaging Apartheid poster project, based in Montreal. Programming will highlight the knowledge and experiences of activists and organizers from Toronto, and how art and social justice can impact one another.
About Justseeds: Justseeds Artists’ Cooperative is a decentralized network of 24 artists committed to making print and design work that reflects a radical social, environmental, and political stance. With members working from the U.S., Canada, and Mexico, Justseeds operates both as a unified collaboration of similarly minded printmakers and as a loose collection of creative individuals with unique viewpoints and working methods. We believe in the transformative power of personal expression in concert with collective action.
