The PCA is delighted to announce that our Pop-Up Exhibition at NKN’s Gallery in Collins Place, Melbourne, is now open!
Curator Marguerite Brown (also PCA’s General Manager), offered the following statement about the exhibition:
The PCA Pop-Up exhibition celebrates the depth and diversity of contemporary printmaking in Australia, featuring artists who work across a range of technical, conceptual and aesthetic approaches. With fifty works on display in honour of the Print Council’s fiftieth anniversary this year, the exhibition is a small snapshot of the PCA Print Archive. This archive began in the late 1960s and continues to grow every year through our annual commission of contemporary artist’s editions, which are then made available for acquisition by collectors in our Print Subscription program. While we hold at least one print from every edition in our archive, and in the collection of the State Library of Victoria, the impressions in this fundraiser exhibition are available for purchase, and all proceeds go towards continuing our work in supporting and promoting contemporary print in Australia, and beyond.
See below for full details of the programmed events … all welcome!
