This opening features the ekphrastic partnership between Samiya Bashir’s Poetry Salon and Letra Chueca Press, a woman- and Latinx-owned printing press. The press was cofounded by Camila Araya and Daniela del Mar, whose vision is to operate a sustainable, multicultural space dedicated to the craft of printing that empowers underrepresented communities. The event features a talk and walk-through of the exhibition with Bashir and del Mar, and a letterpress demonstration.
