In 1982, Self Help Graphics & Art established a screenprint Atelier program to support Latinx artistic production. The project included group discussions between the invited artists and the master printer to explore themes in their individual prints, followed by an exhibition of the group’s work in the studio’s Galería Otra Vez. The program maintained a democratic approach to art production and sales—each print was priced equally regardless of the visual content or the individual artist’s celebrity, further generating a sense of community. The Atelier continues to this day, now with occasional themed exhibitions that highlight the experimental and diverse vision of new generations of artists. During the 1980s, Ateliers produced an exhibition announcement poster compiled with elements of individual prints.
