Points of Contact: Printmaking in Britain 1949 -2019

I am delighted to be curating Points of Contact at Austin / Desmond, 
a show  that surveys seventy years of printmaking in Britain.

2 May – 15 June 2019                                                                                                      
Private View: Wednesday 1 May, 6-8pm                                                        
Final day drinks: Saturday 15 June, 11am-4pm


The exhibition borrows its title from a series of prints by Victor Pasmore made during the 1960s and 1970s. Here, Points of Contact becomes a description of the mechanics of printmaking, of the printed image’s moment of generation when paper meets ink. It also describes the complicated matrix of relationships that connect these forty-four artists across seventy years of printmaking. The diversity of methods and forms visible in the exhibition testifies to the power and plurality of print, a medium wherein opposites can attract and interact to create new harmonious forms out of division and discord.
