A GRITO FROM THE GREAT LAKES
Galería América, Institute for Latino Studies, University of Notre Dame
01 November through 03 December 2011
This exhibition brings together recent prints that address Indigenous, Latina/o, and working-class issues in the Great Lakes area. Known for creating prints from non-traditional materials, A Grito from the Great Lakes includes 18 relief prints made from incised Louisville Slugger baseball bats, 56 prints from incised hockey sticks, screenprinted felt pennants, and over a dozen relief prints, screenprints, offset lithographs, and digital prints. Specifically for the exhibition at Galería América, Miner has created a limited-edition comic zine (Todavía Trabajando) based on his work in the award-winning graphic novel Studs Terkel’s Working: A Graphic Adaptation (New Press, 2009). I also created a site-specific wall-painting dealing with immigration and indigeneity.
