The press was co-founded 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 will feature a talk and walk-through of the exhibition with Bashir and del Mar. Afterward, del Mar will demonstrate the use of a letterpress, and guests will be welcome to print and take home a broadside commemorating the exhibition opening.
