Curatorial Print / Annual Printmaking Department Exhibition

Department — faculty @ 12:14 pm, Wednesday, March 23rd, 2016

CURATORIAL PRINT / Annual Printmaking Department Exhibition

Maryland Institute College of Art / Rosenberg Gallery

March 22nd – April 3rd, 2016

Please join us for the opening reception: March 25th, 6:30-9 PM

Curated by William Chapman, Ariell Elza, Roman Finkelstein, Alexandra Harmel, Claudia Heitner, Rebecca Herr, Jovana Ivezic, Dasom Kim, Isabel Rosen-Hamilton, Terron Sorrells

Curatorial Print is an exhibition curated by printmakers for printmakers. In previous years, Maryland Institute College of Art’s Print Department has invited guest curators to select work for the exhibition. This year the senior class has taken the reins. We believe that printmaking is about watching, listening, and learning from each other.  This is the last year that students studying print media will work in the Dolphin building which has been the home to everything print for decades.  In striving to emphasize a diverse network of students who are engaged in a myriad of process, each senior has chosen different methods of curation to draw on various aspects of our active print community. Selection took many forms from students contacting seniors and networking, to studio drawers opened and late night visits after hours for a glimpse of new work in production. As the last senior class to graduate from the Dolphin Building, it is important to us to leave our mark on the Print Department as a whole. With Curatorial Print, we hope to create a new tradition that will be carried on by future senior classes in years to come.

Camnitzer’s work investigates how art history is written by those in power, and tends to exclude certain accounts.

Camnitzer’s work is in the permanent collections of Museum of Modern Art, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid; Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, TX; Tate, London; Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires, Argentina; and Daros Latinamerica Collection, Zurich; among others.

Andrew Super is an American artist whose work is grounded in an exploration of time – specifically how little bits of time come to be understood as personal, cultural, or historical moments.
