Printmaking on the Borderline – Evolution and new Tendencies
Nordic Printmaking Conference in Oslo, 28th May 2014.
In collaboration with The Danish-Norwegian Cooperation Fund, the Association of Norwegian Printmakers will arrange a Nordic conference on printmaking at the Lysebu Research and Conference Centre in Oslo on May 28th 2014. The conference will have a Nordic profile, and will discuss the challenges and future of printed arts, a discipline that receives little notice within today’s contemporary art.
The focus of the conference will be that of printmaking as an art form. Our aim is to strengthen both the art of printmaking and the expertise within the area of art theory. We hope to bolster interest, knowledge and acceptance for printmaking, with discussions that bring both professional and innovative viewpoints to the medium, and at the same time safeguarding tradition.
The conference coincides with the award ceremony of the Queen Sonja Nordic Art Award 2014, and the exhibition of works from the nominated artists shown at The Association of Norwegian Printmakers’ Gallery in Oslo.
The conference has received generous support from the Fritt Ord Foundation, The Nordic Culture Fund and Kulturrådet – Arts Council Norway.
