PRINT+: Sameness and Otherness in Contemporary Printmedia
October 6, 2023 – February 1, 2024
Open for Homecoming 2023 | Saturday October 7, 12 – 7 PM
Print+ focuses on the importance of showcasing artwork where diversity, equity, accessibility, and inclusion create an essential and fertile ecology.
In this gathering, artists coming from diverse backgrounds and multiple intersectionalities present works of protest and resistance using one or more printing elements; the inks, the matrixes, the paper, the equipment, or the print. The resulting artwork can range from two-dimensional and three-dimensional objects to time-based videos and performances; from hospital gowns to quilts, from handkerchiefs to cotton; from folded paper to photographs. Each work tells a unique story as varied as the lives of the participating artists.
Curated by Sheila Goloborotko, Print + initially showcased at the Hunterdon Art Museum in Clinton, NJ. It subsequently journeyed to the Museum of Contemporary Art in Jacksonville, FL, where Goloborotko serves as an Associate Professor in Printmaking at the University of North Florida. California Lutheran University will be the concluding venue for this traveling exhibition.
It is hosted in both the William Rolland Gallery of Fine Art and the Kwan Fong Gallery.
