Community & Context presents work from local and national Australian artists who have employed print practices to realise their diverse intentions. Drawn together in their curiosity about the boundaries of the printed image, they consider the possibility of print in an expanded field. Each artist explores the significance of print in the context of contemporary art and design, and printmaking’s relationship to text and spatial practices. Many of the artists address printmaking’s historical association with book production and design, and all have a keen sense of the common visual sensibilities and intentions that might define or draw a community of artists together.
