Echoes: Contemporary Trends in Printmaking

Beginning in the 1960s, artists engaged in printmaking shifted away from autographic mark making and craftwork, toward critiquing methods of representation, communication, commerce, and society itself. They embraced a diverse range of unorthodox processes, many of which came about by placing concept before technique, breaking down boundaries between mediums. Six decades later in a media-saturated and digitally-interconnected present, many artists are returning to traditional print processes and hand-crafted matrices to create biting and beautiful commentary. Presenting a wide range of contemporary artists and their ideas, this talk surveys the recent trajectory and prolific use of printed art.
