ABOUT THIS EXHIBITION

about-exhibition

DATES & TIMES

9 December - 21 February

Open Daily: 10am - 4pm

The idea of a book as an art object evolved in the mid-20th Century when artists began experimenting with the book format as a means to express their ideas.

This touring exhibition from the Print Council of Aotearoa New Zealand (PCANZ) sees printmakers from throughout Aotearoa New Zealand expand and explore the idea of the artist book by taking the concept of a book further, creating art objects inspired by the form and/or function of a book. This idea has been approached using a range of techniques and materials which extend beyond the realm of traditional printmaking.

PCANZ is a member-run, national, non-profit organisation that promotes contemporary fine art printmaking. PCANZ foster a greater appreciation of printmaking among members and the wider community.

Printmaking workshops to be held in February 2021.
