Connections Opening

CONNECTIONS: The Artist/Master Printer exhibition opened on Saturday 17 December at 2pm. Artists Basil Hall, Michael Kempson and Ron McBurnie presented artist talks to the small crowd, along with curator Akky van Ogtrop.

The exhibition introduces the individual and collaborative practice of Basil Hall, artist and founder of Basil Hall Editions; Michael Kempson, artist and founder of Cicada Press; and Ron McBurnie, artist and publisher of Monsoon Publishing. The selection of works from their personal archives includes 28 of their artist collaborators over many years.

"This tells a story of facilitating and shows that the collaboration between an artist and master-printer can create some of the most exciting, innovative and unconventional ideas to the medium. This not only breaks down barriers between various media and raises the profile of prints in contemporary art but also expands the boundaries of printmaking." - Akky can Ogtrop, Curator
