Collaboration & Innovation: Mixografia’s Revolutionary Printmaking
In the first program of a new two-part series on Collaboration & Innovation, ALOUD is excited to explore the rich history of one of L.A.’s foremost artistic workshops. Mixografia is a fine arts printer and publisher founded and run by the Remba family for three generations. Moving from Mexico City to Los Angeles, Mixografia’s three-dimensional printing technique has evolved over 40 years to expand printmaking possibilities for artists and to make art more accessible through its innovative print runs. How does such technology impact art? What does it mean for an artist to have their vision altered by the creative process? In a live conversation with ALOUD’s Jessica Strand, we’ll consider the nuanced collaboration between printer and artist like Analia Saban that pushes the limits of what printmaking can be. How has the work of the artist been transformed through their relationship with Mixografia? We’ll also look back in an original ALOUD video segment at the Remba family’s journey to Los Angeles and how they revolutionized the art of printmaking while building a community around a creative process. Join us for this intimate look at collaboration from a local studio that has reached audiences all over the world.
