Curators’ statement: The boundaries that once defined printmaking and its notional definitions have evolved exponentially in the post print age to being inclusive but not limited to a myriad of constellations within a professional practice. Progressive forms of printmaking are shaping the future of the medium along with the interactive communication mechanisms, creating a rich tapestry of meaning. Each of the artists represented in “Geo-Codes: Mapping a Practice in the Post Print Age,” has explored the discipline in new ways, mapping and charting their own subjective experience in a manner that is inclusive of past, present, and future forms of visual expression.
