2006 marks the fortieth anniversary of the Print Council of Australia.
Marks and Motifs: Prints from the PCA Collection has been organised to celebrate this important event and honours four decades of contemporary print production in Australia.
Drawn from the nationally significant Print Archive of the Print Council of Australia in Melbourne, the exhibition surveys various developments in printmaking from the mid 1960s through to the present day. Works produced by established printmaking modes are juxtaposed with prints incorporating photo-media and digital technology. Contemporary issues of cultural identity, social justice, the environment, ruralism and war and reflective of Australia's socio-political consciousness are explored in the exhibition.
