I Think We Meet Here

Jan. 26 – Feb. 23, 2018

This exhibition will feature video works from three artists from the Core Residency Program in Houston. Each artist, Yue Nakayama (Japan), Shana Hoehn (USA), and Felipe Steinberg (Brazil), is engaged in a search--for freelance animators, participants on dating/meeting platforms, and monsters. Their videos explore the relationships that emerge as a result of their searches. The title of the exhibition, I Think We Meet Here, describes a proposition not yet resolved, a disorientation in location, a confession of doubt--a collaboration.

Print Futures

Jan. 28, 2018

As we move into a post-digital landscape where digital technologies aren't a new presence but a familiar backdrop in a larger conversation, what are the ramifications in the print world? In what ways have artists and institutions adapted and incorporated it into traditional analog-maker approaches. How is it being successfully utilized and in what ways does it fall short of expectations? In this panel, four artist-practitioners discuss the way technology is utilized in their personal practice and/or at their affiliated institutions. 

A panel discussion on the future of printmaking and printed artwork with an emphasis on the supplemental use of digital technologies. Each of the four presenters will do a 15-minute presentation about their work followed by a half hour of Q&A. Presenters will include Dr. Paul Laidler (Centre for Fine Print Research, University of West England), Professor Lari Gibbons (Associate Professor of Art, University of North Texas; Director of PRINT Press), Professor R. Eric McMaster (Lecturer, University of Texas at Austin; Manager, Digital Fabrication Lab), and Evelyn Contreras (graduate student, University of Texas at Austin). The panel will be moderated by Professor Jason Urban (Senior Lecturer, University of Texas at Austin).

This panel has been organized in conjunction with Print Austin. Image credit: Evelyn Contreras, Untitled, Acrylic, silkscreen, spray paint, mirrored acrylic, wood, & LED, 48″x48″x64″, 2017.​
