Production of prints is increasingly being executed beyond the territory of the traditional print studio. The printed outcome can often break the boundaries of the picture frame and increasingly printmakers are finding new forms of display and installation of printworks which go beyond the convention of the framed work on paper in a white cube gallery space.
This joint paper examines the moves by artist-printmakers to work outside the confines of the print studio or the picture frame. Illustrated by reference to a number of case studies, hitherto unpublished, we will look at ways in which prints are being produced in non-traditional settings and using innovative methods. We will examine how the concept, form and context of printed outcomes often dictates new and unorthodox modes of display and installation.
The illustrated talk will consider the implications of the expanded field of printmaking on the status and identity of printmaking in the early 21st century.
