6–7:30pm

Poster House is excited to celebrate Women’s History Month with Lisa Daniell and Natalie Alcide of the Women’s Press Collective. This wide-ranging presentation will highlight parts of the museum’s permanent collection to explore the impact of women on the poster field, with special attention paid to posters used in movement organizing. Join in person at the museum or virtually to learn how women from all walks of life have shaped the art and history of the poster!

This program is presented in-person and live-streamed for our virtual audience.

Founded in 1982, the Women’s Press Collective is a NYC-based, all-volunteer association of artists, printers, writers, and others in publishing and media, joining with community and labor organizers to build independent, community-based press production.

Lisa Daniell has been an organizer since 1994, using a community-organizing approach to build independent community-based press. She is the Operations Manager of Women’s Press Collective (WPC) and Editor of WPC’s magazine, Collective Endeavor.

Natalie Alcide is a Senior Art Director at TBWA\Chiat\Day and an adjunct professor at the City College of New York. A native Brooklynite, her Haitian roots and working class upbringing inform her passion for crafting narratives that authentically represent the cultures of underrepresented communities and telling stories that often go untold. Natalie has been a volunteer with WPC since 2016.
