Edinburgh Printmakers are delighted to host the launch RE:PRINT, a publication edited by Véronique Chance and Duncan Ganley.
RE:PRINT brings together the work of twenty contemporary artists working in the field of expanded printmaking, to explore the relationship between print media, interdisciplinary art and new technologies. A hybrid of art object, book, physical and electronic form, RE:PRINT addresses concerns of reproducibility, technical developments and inter-medial approaches in contemporary art. Through an interplay of image and text from a diverse range of practitioners,
RE:PRINT critically rethinks the notion of ‘print’ as both artwork and published multiple and debates what is print in the twenty first century.
To celebrate the launch of this esteemed publication, Véronique Chance, Duncan Ganley and Nick Devison will appear in conversation from 6.30pm to 7.30pm. This discussion is free but ticketed. Please book your tickets here.
Following this discussion, all are welcome to join us for refreshments.

In his recent work, Devison has manipulated found imagery in an attempt to elaborate new patterns of meaning from disparate and sometimes fragmented source material. The images, many of which allude to the history of technology, from cosmological diagrams to renaissance perspectival illustration, are reimagined as a means of exploring ideas of location, mapping, time and space.

His curated exhibitions include Provenance 2010 and Viewfinder 2011 -12 which toured venues in the UK and South Korea.
