Wednesday, September 24, 2014 - 6:00pm to 9:00pm

The Printing Museum has secured the rights to screen an acclaimed documentary about Amos Paul Kennedy, a letterpress poster printer from Chicago. Funds raised from the evening will help  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 then choosing to break them, Amos redefines what life (and letterpress printing) can be: exhilarating and subversive.  Wednesday 24th September 2014, 6pm, The Pit (12B09)Massey College of Creative Arts Building. Premium tickets: $30 (includes your own copy of the DVD), Standard tickets: $20, Massey students: $10. All Ticket Prices include a pre-theatre drink and snack. To reserve tickets: Please email [email protected]
