2008 Southern Graphics Council Conference
Wednesday March 26 – Saturday March 29, 2008
Printmaking was one of the very first replication technologies and is now poised, as it integrates digital media and expands its conceptual borders, to occupy a pivotal position in contemporary art and culture.
This conference will encourage critical discourse on such issues as digital media and expanded notions of print media, print theory, the plight of material and process specific disciplines, marginalization, and understanding printmaking’s shift to a place of leadership in the postmodern terrain.
