EFA presents 8 in 8: ReEnvisioning Print, a curatorial project by Womxn Who Print*. This exhibition features works in print media by eight artists associated with the EFA Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop (RBPMW), Nandini Chirimar, Michele Godwin, Rie Hasegawa, Shervone Neckles, Minna Resnick, Catherine Stack, Adreinne Waheed, and Taehee Whang. Within their eight practices, these living artists make work reflective of our times that is fluid and multidisciplinary in approach, language, and research. They epitomize the printshop’s founder, Bob Blackburn’s vision in pushing the limits of what it means to print, embracing and not in spite of its reproductive qualities.
8 in 8 spotlights a wide range of technical, formal and conceptual practices that incorporate drawing, textile, objects, installation and video. Focusing not only on technical expertise, these works reveal various stages of the creative process in the artists’ studio practice. Each artist has a distinct and interdisciplinary approach combining traditional methods of print with various media and presentation strategies. They reflect on a range of issues that include gender, migration, waste, ancestral history and race in their experimentation with and development of printmaking’s potential.
*Founded in 2018 by Ann deVere, Womxn Who Print (WWP) is a NYC based coalition of womxn printers, creating opportunity and community in printmaking. WWP sets in motion the active engagement of collaborative interests and support for, by, and with community.
