Instituto Gráfico de Chicago (IGC), a grassroots printing collective from the Pilsen neighborhood, is excited to announce its 6th annual FREE, educational printmaking festival, Grabadolandia, scheduled to take place November 16, 17, and 18, 2018.

GRABADOLANDIA is a three-day printmaking festival that spans multiple venues throughout the city of Chicago. The main event, which is a print fair, will once again be housed at the National Museum of Mexican Art (NMMA). During this event, the public is invited to learn about printmaking and its rich history by participating in free demonstrations and hands-on activities. On the occasion of our 6th anniversary, we will also to be joined by four printmakers representing two of Oaxaca City’s most dynamic collectives, Burro Press and Cooperativa Grafica, who will lead several live demonstrations and conversations about contemporary printmaking in Mexico.

*Please join us for these special FREE events, highlighting the presence of an active and engaged printmaking community in the city of Chicago and beyond.
