Joseph Segura is Emeritus Professor at the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts at Arizona State University. An internationally renowned master printer and past Visiting Fellow of the Institute for Latino Studies at the University of Notre Dame. Professor Segura developed his interest in printmaking as a graduate student at Southern Illinois University-Carbondale, where he received an MFA in drawing and painting in 1977, followed by an apprenticeship at Tamarind Institute. He received certification as a Tamarind Master Printer in 1984.
In 1979, Mr. Segura received an invitation to teach and launch a print research facility at Arizona State University. Driven by the unique collaborative relationship that develops between the artist and the printer, Joseph Segura cofounded the Segura Publishing Company in Tempe, Arizona, in 1981. Committed to advancing a vital dialogue between art and the larger world, the company produced fine-art limited edition prints and monotypes by leading contemporary artists. Working with artists such as Enrique Chagoya, Judy Chicago, James Turrell, Faith Ringgold, Sue Coe and Vik Muniz, Segura Publishing was recognized as a mainstay of the artistic community both locally and nationally. Much of the work by these and the other artists he has collaborated with, address the romantic myths of the American Southwest, and often examine the historical realities of immigration, acculturation and assimilation.
Retiring from Arizona State University in 2010, Professor Segura relocated to South Bend, IN. He worked in collaboration with the Institute for Latino Studies to bring Segura Publishing to the Notre Dame Center for Arts and Culture, making it the only university print studio in the country producing primarily Latino artwork, yet drawing from a bank of internationally known artists.
Professor Segura is a collaborative artist working in both printmaking and film. His collaborative work has been collected by numerous museums, including the Walker Art Museum, the Brooklyn Museum of Art, The Center for Creative Photography, the National Museum of American Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art-Chicago, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Fogg Art Museum, and many others. Professor Segura's films have been exhibited in national film festivals such as the San Francisco International, the New York International, Margaret Meade International, and the Chicago Latino International.
Currently, Joseph Segura is working in his own studio making paintings, drawings and prints.
