Artists in Print is a day-long event celebrating all things print as part of DCA’s 20th Birthday festivities. Providing an opportunity for artists, academics, theoreticians and historians to consider the issues around print and contemporary art in Scotland, the day consists of a series of artists’ talks and chaired dialogues. Presentations by artists Claire Barclay, Scott Myles, Tessa Lynch, Edwin Pickstone, Jacqueline Butler and Helen de Main will frame a number of themed conversations followed by a panel discussion. DCA Print studio has a twenty year history of working with cutting-edge and traditional print technologies, and over the course of the day we will hear from artists with direct experience of working with the print studio, through DCA’s gallery exhibition programme and Scotland more broadly. Focussing on the approach of artists with print, this is a rare opportunity to hear how practitioners think about using print processes in innovative and inventive ways, connecting to its social histories, collaborative processes and technological materiality.
Organised by Rachel Adams, AHRC doctoral researcher funded working with the University of Edinburgh and Dundee Contemporary Arts and possible with the kind support of DCA and University of Edinburgh Devolved Research Fund.
