Hybrid Practices within Printmaking Symposium
Edwardian Rooms, Chelsea College of Arts, 16 John Islip St, SW1P4JU
10am – 6pm, 24 April 2015
Speakers: Ellen Heck, Annette and Caroline Kierulf, Jo Love, Christian Rümelin
Chair: Paul Coldwell
The symposium will explore a range of approaches to printmaking in which ideas and intentions are allied to process and technique, resulting in what can best be described as hybrid practices. Current practice draws upon a rich history of printmaking both in terms of technique and the means through which images, as vehicles for ideas, are distributed. With the advent of digital technologies, the opportunities for artists to combine processes and approaches has never been greater.
Annette and Caroline Kierulf work as independent artists within a joint project focused on social engagement using relief print as one aspect of production. Jo Love addresses issues of materiality and the relationship between the digital and physical, while Ellen Heck combines drypoint and woodcut to explore notions of identity. And finally, Christian Rümelin, will discuss the monumental woodcuts of Christiane Baumgartner and her approach to technology.
The symposium is open to staff, students and the general public.
