Exhibition: Print and Process
1 March – 8 June 2018
Level 4 Gallery, Hartley Library, 
University of Southampton SO17 1BJ

“This exhibition reveals and identifies a broad range of print processes. It runs across the Level 4 Gallery and the Special Collections Gallery, and includes prints from the Library’s Special Collections, from the University Art Collection and from Fine Art students at the Winchester School of Art.

The date range of the works shown runs from 1530 to 2018, and one thing that stands out by seeing these works in such close proximity to each other is that traditional printmaking techniques, such as woodcut, etching, mezzotint and lithograph, have for the most part remained unchanged over the years.

Today, in what is termed the post-digital milieu, we are entirely fascinated by the physicality of print, both new and old. You will have heard the rumour that print is dead, but this exhibition shows it in rude health.” (Website L4 Gallery)
