“Printopolis expands the current body of literature on contemporary print culture, exploring graphic media as an ever-evolving field of inquiry, experimentation and artistic practice.” Tara Cooper and Jenn Law, Co-Editors
Printopolis focuses on the critical discourse surrounding the current state of printmaking in Toronto and further afield. Inspired by the 2010 print symposium hosted by Open Studio, the volume considers contemporary print culture from a range of perspectives – collecting, material artifacts and the archive, pedagogy, print technologies, repetition, social activism and intervention, and public space. It also includes essays reflecting on Open Studio’s 45+ year history, as well as artist pages specifically designed for the publication.
