Just Press Print

Reception November 3, 6-8pm

In 2012 Paul Laidler, from the University of the West of England-Bristol UK, curated the exhibition Just Press Print, which explored the impact of digital technology on the practices of a visual artist working in printmaking, a field traditionally associated with craft skills and mechanical processes. Dispensing with conventional exhibition formats, the exhibition displayed 2D and 3D digital prints along with sketches, notes and test proofs bundled in bulldog clips that hung informally from the walls, thereby focusing on the creative process and not the outcome.

The exhibition was shown at Northern Print Gallery, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, Multiplied Contemporary Print Fair, Christies, London and IMPACT Conference, University of Dundee. The exhibition is touring the USA from 2015 at venues including Maryland Institute College of Art, Baltimore; Arizona State, Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts; Dept of Art & Art History, University of Utah; University of Wisconsin-Madison Art Department; School of Education; Department of Art & Design University of New Haven and IPCNY (International Print Centre New York).
