The University of Wisconsin-Madison occupies ancestral Ho-Chunk land, called Teejop (day-JOPE) since time immemorial. In an 1832 treaty, the Ho-Chunk were forced to cede this territory. Decades of ethnic cleansing followed when both the federal and state government repeatedly, but unsuccessfully, sought to forcibly remove the Ho-Chunk from Wisconsin.

This history of colonization informs our shared future of collaboration and innovation. We respect the inherent sovereignty of the Ho-Chunk Nation, along with the eleven other First Nations of Wisconsin.

SGCI 2022 Annual Conference: Madison Our Shared Future

SGCI 2022 Annual Conference: Madison Our Shared Future

March 16-19, 2022

The Southern Graphics Council International Annual Conference brings together over 1,000 printmakers and arts professionals in all stages of their careers. The Art Department and the School of Education are honored to bridge the international and national SGCI community with the dynamic printmaking legacy of UW-Madison.

Our Shared Future printmaking conference is a call to artists to consider how our studio practice makes culture and knowledge visible through socially engaged graphic arts of the past, present, and future.

Printmaking can deepen our understanding of the world, inherently challenge systems of oppression, and can push against histories of colonization, unwarranted violence, and systemic racism.

Artists share in the responsibility to shape our future. The 2022 SGCI printmaking conference is implicitly guided by the social and environmental ecology of a place and seeks to affirm the role of graphic arts within Our Shared Future.
