Nicholas Lampert: A Decade of Activist Art Portfolio 2008 – 2018

Portfolio housed in box measuring 20 x 26 x 2 inches, and tube measuring 27 ½ x 5 inches, adorned with screenprints. Edition of 20.

This boxset contains 38 items: art that was created for, during and in collaboration with many of the key social justice movements in the United States from 2008-2018 including the NO DAPL movement at Standing Rock, the Wisconsin Uprising (2011), immigrant rights movements, climate justice movements, the student-led movement for gun control, G.I. resistance (Iraq Veterans Against the War), labor movements, teachers strikes and more.

Nicolas Lampert is a Milwaukee-based interdisciplinary artist and author whose work focuses on themes of social justice and ecology. His artwork is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Milwaukee Art Museum, the Library of Congress, and over fifty-five archives and special collections across the US and Canada.

Collectively, he works with four groups: the Justseeds Artists’ Cooperative – a worker-owned printmaking cooperative of twenty-nine artists in North America that formed in 2007; ReciproCity – a Milwaukee-based collective established in 2012 that works at the intersection of art, architecture, urban sustainability, and a socially-just version of community re-development; Climate Prints – a website/activist infrastructure project that shares downloadable graphics on Climate Justice and puts this work directly into movements; and Voces de los Artistas, an art-affinity group established in 2016 that works in collaboration with Voces de la Frontera – an immigrant rights organization based in Wisconsin.

His first book A People’s Art History of the United States: 250 Years of Activist Art and Artists Working in Social Justice Movements was published by The New Press in 2013 and is part of the People’s History Series edited by Howard Zinn.
