The Persistence of Print
The printing press has been a significant force for widespread literacy, news circulation, and awareness of the world. The ability to disseminate information quickly and affordably has changed society profoundly since the invention of movable type. In the current age of mass production, endless feeds, fake news and algorithms, there are many questions about how our field will adapt. Despite this, artists continue to evolve printmaking to inform audiences—blending new and historical techniques to give voice to current issues. How does the print as we know it today persist as a tool for social change?
Submissions accepted through March, 1, 2020.
Prints as Instruments of Change
Printmaking is often called the “democratic medium.” As the culture is inundated with media, and access to nearly infinite information is at our fingertips, what is the role of the print in the fight for democracy, justice, and equity of all kinds? Has the immediacy of social media supplanted traditional outlets, or does the physicality of a print make causes feel more urgent, truth more palpable? This exhibition is open to all artists using the power of the print to promote change—as big as a billboard or as small as a postage stamp! Documentation of community projects or campaigns are also welcome.
Submissions accepted through January, 1, 2020.
