PRESS RELEASE ATTACHED BELOW FOR FREE PUBLIC EVENTS!
The 2010 Mid America Print Council Conference “New World/Old World” explores places where tradition and experimentation meet; Between generations, media and technique, private studios and public events, printmakers increasingly embrace a mixture of practices from different sources. As we enter a new decade of printmaking with an expansive mindset, we look for ways in which our practice finds a context in contemporary art by re-inventing tradition. The MAPC 2010 conference facilitates dialogues between eras and technologies.
The conference is based at the University of Minnesota Regis Center for The Arts in Minneapolis, Minnesota, a city with strong cultural institutions and a vibrant art scene. Demonstrations will take place at the Department of Art’s state of the art print studios. Events will take place at venues around the Twin Cities at locations including The Walker Art Center, The Minneapolis Institute of Arts, Highpoint Center for Printmaking, The Minnesota Center for Book Arts, Aesthetic Apparatus, Associated Colleges of the Twin Cities, CVA and MCAD. We are also partnering with the Mexican Consulate in celebration of 2010 as the 100th Anniversary of the Mexican Revolution and the 200th anniversary of independence!
