Let all the birds fly: the hybrid print. An exhibition of eleven interstate artists whose work is print based but who have challenged and expanded our understanding of the print in a contemporary context. Printmaking is like a language that continually reinvents itself with artists investigating new meanings through materiality and making.
Questioning long-held traditions of printmaking, guest curators and artists Therese Kenyon and Patricia Wilson-Adams invited nine artists to join them in the exhibition Let all the birds fly: the hybrid print. Here the artists explore the very nature of printmaking and seek to push the boundaries of the medium and fly free from conventions.
