Launch: Friday 4 March 6-8pm with performative print by Mats Undén
As the Print Council of Australia (PCA) celebrates its 50th year, NCCA is giving over galleries 1 and 2 and the Boxset to priNT: a representative exhibition of printmaking from across the Northern Territory over the last 10 years.
Jobling explains, “This exhibition will show the diversity and depth of the work of over 20 artists mostly working from home studios… We have tried to choose works that fulfil the PCA advocacy of promoting prints and printmakers, works on paper, artists’ books and zines and collecting art on paper… I have especially chosen works that are experimental and challenge the conventional view of the print.”
priNT focuses on large-scale, 3D and highly experimental works from both indigenous and non-indigenous artists including:
Rob Brown, Franck Gohier, Jacqueline Gribben, Gadaman Gurruwiwi, Mikey Gurruwiwi, Colin Holt, Winsome Jobling, Glynnis Lee, Chips Mackinolty, Barrata Marika, Munuy’ngu Marika, Tara McDonald, Anne McMaster, Jemma Petch, Mamburra Raymond, Therese Ritchie, Merran Sierakowski, Neridah Stockley, Kerrie Taylor, Mats Undén, Gurmarrwuy Yunupingu, Nena Zanos.
