´ace’s director Alicia Candiani, has been invited to give a keynote lecture and to become part of the Refereeing Committee of the papers that will be presented at the First Latin American Printmaking Symposium, which will be held from the 25th to the 27th of July  in the city of San Miguel de Tucumán Argentina. “Expanded Field Printmaking Practices: areas of transgression” is scheduled for July the 25th at 10.30am.


The Printmaking Workshop of the College of Arts of the National University of Tucuman will be hosting the Symposium, which seeks to expand the debate regarding contemporary printmaking through an open call to educators, researchers, artists and advanced students who work with this technique. The program will address and focus on the following themes: Interdisciplinarity and / or transdisciplinarity, Education, Production and circulation of artistic pieces, Techniques and procedures and Non-traditional and alternative editions.


In addition, the symposium covers a range of activities including graphic technique workshops, printmaking techniques, an exhibition of posters and mini prints. For more information or to register and participate in this event, please contact the organizers via email

“Expanded field printmaking practices: areas of transgression” will be presented as a platform for the reflection regarding the “expanded” printmaking, analyzing multiple visual examples of contemporary artists who use print media in situations of transgression.

In the particular case of printmaking, there is a breakdown of the conventional parameters that leads to a cyclical approach to other categories -photography, installations and video- and this gap places itself  into a “in-between” category,  extending not only to technological displacement or hybridization of the practice but also to the conception of art itself: the concern does not go through the definition of gender with which they work, even for the technique that the artists use, but to the discursive effectiveness that artwork generates through these hybrid means.

A neighborhood founded on the Jesuit farms in the 17th century

We are located in Colegiales neighborhood where the tree-lined streets, some of which still have their original cobblestones, invite you to walk. Although the apartment buildings advance, low houses still predominate. It is a district of the city where about 20 TV production companies, design studios, artist workshops and the Rock&Pop radio have been located. The neighborhood also has six squares, one of which pays homage to Mafalda, the Flea Market, shops, restaurants and cafes like its neighboring Barrios de Palermo and Belgrano, with which it limits.
