An interchange is a point of decision. A pause to reflect on where you have been; a place to look forward to where you are going. More than an intersection of highways, it is where one path flows through, over, into and past another.
To be pressed implies physical contact between subject and matrix; to print is to read the surface of an object. Printmaking is fundamentally forensic, as pressure and contact between plate, press, and paper reveal a gateway to truths unseen.
Second State Press seeks work for their upcoming juried exhibition, Interchange, that embraces transience and questions printmaking and its place at the interchange of art and technology, interdisciplinary cross-pollination, and the intersection between past and present. How does one adapt to and embrace overlaps, arrivals and departures within the culture of print? What hybrid methods and materials within print encourage engagement in adaptability and chance operations? What power does printmaking hold to answer these questions and affect change? Artists whose work mines the possibilities that arise out of intersections and who are at crossroads within their own careers are strongly encouraged to apply.
Eligibility: Any artist working in the Unites States whose studio practice utilizes printmaking in some form is welcome to apply. No solely digital works will be accepted.
