Dr Véronique Chance talks about RE:PRINT/RE:Present

RE:PRINT/RE:Present

This talk will draw on the recent RE:PRINT/RE:Present Exhibition and Symposium that took place at Anglia Ruskin University in July 2015, profiling the work and ideas of the artists who took part in both events.

RE:PRINT/RE:Present was the first of a number of developing projects conceived under the banner RE:PRINT, a research project with the aim of promoting international networks in discussion, exhibition and exchange. Initiated as a launch project following discussions with artists and academics, its concerns centre on inter-medial (or cross platform) approaches to printmaking and the nature of reproduction and reproducibility within current art practice.

Co-curated by Dr. Veronique Chance and British, New Zealand–based artist Mark Graver, artists taking part in the exhibition and symposium were asked to consider the following questions that we felt were particularly pertinent to recent developments in printmaking:

1. Technological developments in print media, moving image, sound and performance, have often led to cross-platform dialogue but how are these relationships RE-Presented when immersed in today’s hyper-mediated status of image, sound, and file reproduction?

2. When almost anyone is capable of uploading, downloading, creating, modifying, copying, sharing and deleting files of every and any digitally convertible medium, how does the current frenzy of data use and re-use, challenge our understanding and expectations of image and media reproduction?

3. What kind of spaces or places are constructed, performed or revealed in the process?

4. What is the impact on the shared vocabulary across these media: between the notion of a print; of screen interaction; of the nature of collage; of sequence and seriality; of the conception of the unique; of the multiple and the edition or indeed of art and artefact?

Dr Véronique Chance is the course leader on the MA Printmaking course at Anglia Ruskin University.
