26°S 121°E | On the Map presents a comprehensive survey of printmaking in Western Australia. Curated by Laura A. Taylor, this exhibition unites work by 35 WA print artists and presents a tantalising glimpse of the diversity of print practices that can be found between Broome and Albany.
The exhibition pays homage to all WA artists working in the ancient art form of ‘print making’ – etching, woodcut, lithography, screen-printing - or reinterpret these processes into a modern narrative which speaks to a world that increasingly values the hand-made over the mass-produced.
26°S 121°E On the Map testifies that while geographical location may inform these artists’ works, it is no barrier to plugging into the global contemporary arts network. The exhibition, which is funded by the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries of WA, is held in tandem with Print Council of Australia’s national 2017 Print Commission folio launch and is supported by workshops delivered by PAWA printmakers at the Midland Junction Arts Centre.
