Beyond Printmaking 5 Symposium

What: BP5 Symposium
When: March 24 –March 25
Where: Texas Tech University, Lubbock, TX

Today many contemporary artists who originally started with printmaking as their primary medium continue to use it in a conceptual or altered technical form to create visually captivating and socially or politically engaging discourses through interdisciplinary approaches. For Beyond Printmaking 5, we chose Patricia Villalobos Echeverría as juror because she is an artist whose practice embodies this vision.

The BP5 Symposium, as an extension of Beyond Printmaking 5, will address the melding of the hybrid processes that allows printmaking to be a perfect vehicle in STEAM education. With so many possibilities in printmaking's future, we will also address the implications of technology with regards to traditional printmaking process.

The BP5 Symposium will present opportunities to discuss the exciting possibilities of printmaking as it embraces not only traditional processes of sculpture, photography and installation, but also insinuates itself into engineering, computer science, and beyond.

For symposium and registration details, visit the website: http://www.depts.ttu.edu

The Beyond Printmaking 5 Symposium is a free event. Please register if you will be attending. Only registered guests will be accommodated at the BP5 Symposium Print Fair and Closing Dinner.
