Natasha Pestich's exhibition features posters that track artist Jan Xylander's short-lived career. Digital and hand printed exhibition posters serve to both commemorate and pose questions about the significance of his work after his disappearance from the art world.
Pestich is a Minneapolis artist, educator and community artist. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec, and her Master of Fine Arts in Printmaking from Tyler School of Art, Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She is currently a Professor at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD), where she has developed an innovative curriculum in the study of printmaking, attracting the attention of the Mid-America Printmaking Journal, for whom she wrote an article on education. She has had solo exhibitions at alternative spaces like the Urban Institute for Contemporary Art in Michigan, the Generator Gallery in Scotland, and in museums like the Minneapolis Institute of Arts in Minnesota.
These events are free and open to the public. Martha Street Studio is located at 11 Martha St. and is an accessible space with an elevator and two washrooms.
