The Contemporary Print

PrintAustin invites you to enter our 5th annual juried international exhibition “The Contemporary Print” to be held at O2 Gallery at Flatbed Press Headquarters during PrintAustin 2018.

The Contemporary Print exhibition is a survey of the traditions and the innovations of contemporary printmaking happening today. While non-traditional or digital output is accepted as a print element, submissions must utilize traditional print media as their primary technique including: Lithography, Relief, Intaglio, Silkscreen, Photo Polymer Plate and Monotype. Solely Digital and Photographic Prints are not eligible but feel free to contact us with any questions

Organizer: PRINTAUSTIN Collective
Venue: The Contemporary Print held at O2 Space @ Flatbed Press Headquarters Austin, Texas
January 20 –February 17, 2018
Opening Reception: January 20, 6-8pm

JUROR: This is the first time The Contemporary Print will be accepting international artists and we are excited to have our first juror from the United Kingdom. Dr. Paul Laidler is a Senior Research Fellow at the Centre for Fine Print Research (CFPR) and Senior Lecturer in BA Illustration / MA Multidisciplinary Printmaking, University of the West England, Bristol, United Kingdom. The main focus of Paul’s academic activities stems from the close relationships that exist between technology, ideas and making in the graphic arts – particularly in the area of digitally-mediated print and its many offshoots. He contributes to critical discourse in print as a curator and arts writer, and is an associate editor for the Intellect Journal Drawing Research Theory and Practice. His research explores the impact of digital technology within the field of fine art printmaking, focusing on the advantages of using the traditional collaborative print studio model when generating and realising physical artefacts in the digital age. Over the years Paul has worked on print projects for artists such as Richard Hamilton, Lesley Dill, Joe Tilson, Gordon Cheung and Stanley Donwood.

Artists' Book Competition Call for Entries - UNT Special Collections

UNT Special Collections would like to announce a call for entries for the 10th Biennial Artists' Book Competition. The purpose of this competition is to encourage the development of students' work in the medium of artists' books, to foster the creation of artists' books, to reward excellence and creativity in the medium, and to build the collection of artists' books in the UNT Libraries' Special Collections.

Entries will be accepted in two categories: a Student Purchase Prize category and a Non-Student category. One winner will be selected from each category, but the $400 purchase award will only be given to the winner of the student category. Honorable mention awards will be given in each category, at the discretion of the jurors. Additional entries from both categories may be selected for purchase, dependent upon availability and budget restrictions of UNT Special Collections. All entries must have been created within the last two years to be eligible.

Works must be delivered to Willis Library December 4-15, 2017.

An exhibit of all entries will be on display in Willis Library from January 8-March 9, 2018.

2018 DIGIFAB Symposium Call for Submissions

The North Texas Digital Fabrication Group is excited to announce the call for submissions for our Third Annual Symposium, to be hosted by the Texas Woman's University Department of Visual Arts. The 2018 Symposium will include an extra day this time around, with the dates set as April 20 and 21 (Friday and Saturday).

The theme we have chosen is "Humanizing the Digital", which is intended to both celebrate ways that technology-based processes are connecting us to things beyond technology, and widen the circle of those involved in the conversation. We envision a symposium where a diverse range of speakers represent a cross-disciplinary range of topics within the overall theme. The session formats include presentations, panels, and workshops. And we encourage session structures that create space for dialogue to happen throughout.

The deadline for proposals is 10/30/17. Please pass the call along to anyone who might have an interest in proposing, and please reach out to anyone who you think would have something to contribute, but who might not see themselves as being connected to digital fabrication. Here are links to both the call, and the online proposal form, and there is a PDF attached if you want to print out the call and distribute it.

We can't wait to see what this amazing community will come up with! 

--The NTDF Symposium Planning Committee:
Colby Parsons, Julie Libersat, James Thurman, and Danielle Avram
