The Printing Museum has secured special rights from the filmmaker to screen an acclaimed documentary about Amos Paul Kennedy, a letterpress poster printer from Chicago. Funds raised from the evening will help to preserve the Museum's outstanding collection of printing equipment.
Proceed and Be Bold! joins Amos for a titillating retelling of his story, while examining the pretensions and provisions of the art world. The work of this self-proclaimed "humble negro printer" raises emotionally-charged questions and reveals remarkable depth beneath the bold print. By learning the rules and choosing to break them, Amos redefines what life (and letterpress printing) can be - exhilarating and subversive.
Share a snack and a drink with the letterpress community before the show.
