Group exhibition by University of Alberta Printmaking Students
This exhibition celebrates the fruits of a year of self-directed studio and academic research by ten undergraduate senior level printmaking students, and three first-year graduate students in the Department of Art and Design, University of Alberta.
Incidental Folds features a range of printmaking media including collagraph, etching, silkscreen, lithography, as well mixed-media works. With their print projects and over a series of seminars students explored a wide range of themes including identity, body, home, mapping and place. Working closely together in the U of A print studios allowed them to discover productive linkages and folds within their practices which are celebrated in this exhibition.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic and the closure of the print studios and the SNAP Gallery, the students had to creatively adapt and adjust not only their individual projects but also the form of their group exhibition. Although nothing replaces the experience of being able to be with artwork in person, these students have worked together to create a virtual exhibition which is a testimony both to their commitment and dedication to the process of printmaking.
