Woodblock Prints and Medicine: Sugar and Tobacco in the Caribbean

Woodblock Prints and Medicine: Sugar and Tobacco in the Caribbean Online

2022 UCSF Library Artist in Residence, Jacoub Reyes presents "Woodblock Prints and Medicine: Sugar and Tobacco in the Caribbean."

This event highlights pieces from UCSF’s Japanese Woodblock Collection. Jacoub will touch on the cultural significance of woodcraft in Japan and the Caribbean, focusing on materials and history. We will also discuss the relevance of the tobacco and sugarcane industries and their influences on culture, politics, and medicine. These cash crops have significantly contributed to the system of slavery and continue to increase detrimental effects on its people, land, and social structures.

This event will be in the form of a presentation and will touch on techniques and serve as a backbone for a follow-up workshop, which will entail carving and printing a woodcut.

Presented by Jacoub Reyes, UCSF Library's current Artist in Residence. To learn more about the Artist in Residence program visit the UCSF Library website.
