From a simple hello to in-depth sharing, communication is at the heart of all our relationships. Likewise, the roots of printed art are also closely linked to communication. Taking this into account, the Tête-à-tête project, overseen by Zocalo, a center for artists in printed art, chose four duos of artists from different generations to discuss current social issues. Indicative of the present time, these sharings began virtually in the fall of 2021. Initially, the artists received large cardboard tubes recovered from an upholsterer and they were invited to draw inspiration from the Morris column, a column of display. Historically, printed posters announced artistic events, those of the Tête-à-tete project are rooted in printed art and performance.
