Latrobe Printmaking Conference

" CUTTING RE-MARKS". an exhibition /survey of the contemporary woodblock print. 4 May-28 May

To be accompanied by a 2-day forum " Why Make Prints 2" a series of artists' talks , panel discussions and more formal papers looking at the future of autographic printmaking in Art Schools/Universities and amongst contemporary Visual Arts practitioners. Target audience artists, art educators, print curators,suppliers and students.

This forum will address the continuing downsizing of printmaking facilities in artschools and universities throughout Australia in favour of new digital technologies. Is there anything that can be done about this or will these ways of making marks disappear or will they only be taught by the private sector? ? Does it matter if we throw away our stones and metal plates.
