Print Matters Symposium

To celebrate the culmination of their 30 year partnership through the Shell Fremantle Print Award, Shell Australia and the Fremantle Arts Centre are pleased to announce a special exhibition of works by ten Australian artists who have made an outstanding contribution to the genre of print.

Pat Brassington, Susanna Castleden, Lesley Duxbury, Neil Emmerson, Heather Hesterman, Milan Milojevic, Dennis Nona, Jonathan Tse, Paul Uhlmann, Judy Watson

The exhibition at Fremantle Arts Centre will open Friday 2 September and will be on show until 16 October 2005. The launch of a book commemorating the partnership, the Award and these artists will be part of the celebrations.

Print Matters, a national print symposium exploring contemporary print practice will take place 3-4 September 2005. It will include presentations by artists in the exhibition and will bring together artists, curators and educators to explore the nature and future of print in Australia and the region. To register your interest in attending the symposium email printmatters@fremantle.wa.gov.au

Our special programme of events for 2005 commemorates the 30th and final year of the longstanding partnership between the Fremantle Arts Centre and Shell and looks forward to the future for print artists in Australia.

Applications for the 2006 Fremantle Print Award will be available from March 2006.
