“A truly beautiful exhibition” – visitor comment
Sue Gollifer, the artistic curator of the project, has invited curators from nine countries to select printed works from some of the most innovative contemporary printmakers in the field. Hot Plate focuses on installation and unframed work, seeking to position prints as objects and site-specific pieces. A number of the artists have moved away from the wall all together, using new materials, substrates and applications such as cloth, synthetic paper and metal. By approaching contemporary printmaking in the widest possible way, Hot Plate sparks a lively conversation about process, technique and technology within a continuously evolving area of the visual arts. Here the emphasis is on testing the perceived boundaries of the medium, breaking out of the literal and metaphorical ‘frame’ and exploring new formats which actively engage with the gallery space. It also opens up the possibilities for prints to move beyond the gallery walls and engage with modern street culture.
