An interview I did with a group of some of the women involved with the Justseeds artists co-operative, back in 2010, has just been published online at the (new) Aorta blog.
It can be found here: www.aortamagazine.com/blog/women-of-justseeds
Justseeds Artists’ Cooperative is a decentralized community of artists based in Canada, the US and Mexico who have banded together to collaborate with and support each other and social movements.
I spoke with six women active in the diverse Justseeds artists’ co-op, who are an integral part of the collective: Melanie Cervantes (Oakland, CA), Bec Young (Pittsburgh, PA), Molly Fair (Brooklyn, NY), Meredith Stern (Providence RI) and Thea Gahr (Mexico), alongside Nicole Schulman (Brooklyn, NY) who has created art work for Justseeds. We spoke about political collective creativity, art in social movements, socially engaged printmaking, and art as activism.
Many thanks for the patience of the women involved, I know it's been a while since we wrote this!
