Global Matrix III

Deadline: September 9, 2011 (RECEIVE) or (EMAIL)

Global Matrix III

Purdue University Galleries
Yue-Kong Pao Hall of Visual and Performing Arts
West Lafayette, IN

A contemporary review of fine art printmaking in all media from around the world presented as a traveling exhibition by the Purdue University Galleries (West Lafayette, Indiana USA)

From its humble origins as simple relief rubbings or patterns stamped onto paper and cloth, the art of the print has spread to all corners of the globe, growing and developing conceptually as a result of the contributions of an ever-growing circle of international artists. By drawing and manipulating an image matrix, they have utilized the essence of the multiple to explore the varied possibilities of image, color and repetition. The proliferation of multiple images around the world has led to a shared culture of appreciation. Styles and techniques identified with particular printmaking enclaves in various parts of the world can readily be seen now in the works of artists with different languages and different cultures, separated by thousands of miles.
