Pushing Boundaries

This Exhibition marks the first time that the Printmakers Council have exhibited in Ireland. The title Pushing Boundaries recognises that 2016 is a significant year for Ireland as the centenary of the Irish Revolution and the beginnings of a new nation.  Many events are being held across the country to mark the year and this exhibition might be seen as a small but significant part of the living historical process, taking place between Ireland and the UK.

This collection of work by members of the Printmakers Council presents the very best of contemporary printmaking practice. Printmakers Council has no house style, embracing all forms of contemporary and traditional original printmaking. Their growing membership means that exhibitions are selected from an increasingly wider pool of artists keeping exhibitions lively and fresh.  The exhibition will include film, installation, sound pieces, artists’ books, pushing the boundaries of what constitutes a ‘print’.  The work will pursue a range of concerns from the political and social, the aesthetic and formal, to the self and the personal, creating a dynamic dialogue with other contemporary art practices.
