Poster: The Movement of the Liberation of the Coca Plant

[N.p. S.i., 2009]. Collaborative work created by Colombian artist Wilson Díaz and San Francisco native Amy Franceschini. In 2009 Franceschini, an artist and educator in her own right, received an Art Matters grant for support in traveling to Cali, Colombia to work with Díaz on a new body of work titled Movement of the Liberation of the Coca Plant (MLCP). The two have been involved in creating a number of conceptual works which communicate the various political, social, and economic powers at play around the conservation and perpetuity of the coca plant, from which cocaine is derived. Díaz has been known for incorporating pigment extracted from coca seeds into his works, as well creating works on paper made with coca leaf pulp, highlighting some of the plants traditional (non-illicit) uses. Original silkscreened poster, text printed in black on thin, powder gray stock made with coca leaf pulp, measuring 49.75cm x 70cm (19.5" x 27.5"). Old folds smoothed out, small, unobtrusve tear at center, with faint smudge at upper left corner; very Near Fine / A-.
