Upcoming: Researching Community History Workshop at Press Press
Upcoming events on the homefront!
Our fantastic Jennifer Ferretti, will be hosting a workshop titled “Researching Community History & Collaborative Mapmaking” in collaboration with Press Press, and organized by Baltimore curator, Allie Linn.
Press Press is an interdisciplinary publishing initiative established in 2014. Press Press's publishing practice is organized around two key goals; first, to shift and deepen the understanding of voices, identities, and narratives that have been suppressed or misrepresented by the mainstream, so far focusing on immigration and race in the United States; and second, to build networks of relationships through publishing practices centered on self-representation and gathering. Through an understanding of publishing as the act of gathering a public, Press Press’s streams of work include public cultural programming, an open-access publishing studio that’s based on an Exchange Economy, youth publishing workshops in an immigrant & refugee only space, and the ongoing production of print and digital publications. Press Press operates out of a storefront studio and library in Baltimore, Maryland and a production space in Los Angeles, California.
Allie Linn, is a curator, writer, and artist interested in the intersection of crowd-sourced archives, queering space, and the history of artist-run house galleries.
She received her BFA in Interdisciplinary Sculpture and Art History from MICA in 2014 and has attended residencies at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, Grin City Collective, and Mildred's Lane. From 2014 to 2016, Allie co-ran Bb, a storefront project space in the Bromo Arts District of Baltimore, with a rotating group of collaborators. Bb received a Grit Fund through the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts Regional Regranting Program in 2015.
