IMPACT 10: Encuentro España / Encounter Spain

Please make a note in your diary for Autumn 2018 (dates to be confirmed) - IMPACT 10 will be going to Spain!

The Centre for Fine Print Research, University of the West of England Bristol, are delighted to be working with and supporting SM Pro Art in the organisation of IMPACT 10 in Spain 2018.

Over the last 16 years, IMPACT has evolved as Europe’s leading academic discourse on printmaking. Printmaking is now integral to the wider academic debate, through practice, theory, visual culture, and is studied across a range of programmes, from undergraduate to PhD.

Spain has a rich cultural printmaking heritage as well as a thriving contemporary printmaking culture. We therefore want to ensure IMPACT 10 will be a visual and dynamic event that includes exhibitions and plenty of opportunities for networking.

The aim of our next IMPACT is to establish better links with Spanish printmakers both in Europe and across South and North America. And in order to do this, we will be introducing bi-lingual presentations in Spanish and English.

The theme of the event will be ENCUENTRO (ENCOUNTER)

- An ENCUENTRO with Spanish printmaking, its history, iconography and identity

- An ENCUENTRO with the future of the printmaking, new directions, identity and diversity

- An ENCUENTRO of languages and cultures

- An ENCUENTRO of styles and techniques

- And… an ENCUENTRO with the city where Impact will take place
