Printmaking today: a commercial perspective

I've been invited to speak at the Second International Printmaking Symposium (SNAP) in Germany. I'll be talking about my experience in publishing, exhibiting and selling fine art prints.  The lecture will be part of a programme of events that celebrates contemporary printmaking and explores its future. 

SNAP is presented by the Print Association Bentlage and the cultural institution Kloster Bentlage in Rheine, Germany, from 27 - 30 September 2012. Directed at all those who are intellectually and creatively engaged in contemporary printmaking (from students and artists, to dealers and collectors), the symposium will provide an international platform to discuss the aesthetic, philosophical, cultural and technical potential of the medium. The symposium will include lectures, discussions, workshops, trade displays and exhibitions in a programme spanning four days and multiple venues.

Japanese woodcut artist Katsutoshi Yuasa will also be previewing works at SNAP in advance of his forthcoming solo exhibition ‘Miraculous’ that opens at the ISE Cultural Foundation in NYC this November.
