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.

Luis Camnitzer (born 1937) is a German-born Uruguayan artist and writer who moved to New York in 1964. In 1964, he founded the New York Graphic Workshop with artists Liliana Porter and José Guillermo Castillo, and in 1971 helped establish New York’s Museo Latinoamericano, and a splinter group, Movimiento de Independencia Cultural de Latino América (MICLA). 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. He was the recipient of the Guggenheim Fellowships on two occasions, 1961 and 1982. In 2012 he was awarded the United States Artists Fellow Award.
