As an early form of communication, prints and printmaking has had an incalculable effect on human knowledge. The medium has long been considered a social agency for its mass reproducibility, ease of distribution and collaborative character.
While Australian art history, the art market and the art industry have always promoted painting as the supreme art form, some of the most artistically innovative and socially relevant art has been created using the medium of printmaking.
In Print draws on the collection of prints from the Max Watters Collection
This exhibition features Rew Hanks - first and foremost a printmaker whose chosen medium has allowed him to make comment on which could not have been made through any other art form; Robin Wallace-Crabbe - an artist in every sense of the word whose art practice spanned that of a painter, printmaker, illustrator and writer; and Roger Skinner - a photographer whose contemporary experimentation with printmaking has seen produced graphic artworks of collaged photocopies and photographs.
