The 2018 Screenprint Biennial seeks to showcase a range of screenprint-based art applications, from framed editioned prints to installation, sculpture, video, ephemera, and posters. This exhibition will in no way seek to act as a survey or “who’s-who” of screenprinting, but will assemble an exhibition that is consistent in highlighting artists who utilize adventurous, relevant, and passionate takes on the screenprinted medium.
The exhibition is scheduled to premiere at the Opalka Gallery in Albany, NY. Located at the Sage Colleges, the Opalka Gallery’s primary focus is on modern and contemporary art and design from nationally recognized artists. The exhibition will run from October 30-December 14, with an opening reception Friday, November 2nd and one-day symposium Saturday, November 3rd.
The Screenprint Biennial is the curatorial project of Nathan Meltz, printmaker and lecturer in the Art Department of the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY. Any questions can be directed to Meltz at nathanmeltz (at) gmail.com
