Lithography in Other Contexts
Artists in Dialog
Saluting the 1st International Lithography Encounter that took place on November 16, 17 and 18, 2017, Proyecto´ace held a reception in conjunction with the opening of the exhibition Lithography in Other Contexts. Argentinean and international artists –who participated as speakers or guests in the event– gathered together for dinner in celebration of lithography. The exhibition, curated by Alicia Candiani and Adriana Moracci, was the result of a selection from the works coming from Fundación´ace‘s collection. The pieces were made in litho techniques over the years by artists in residency within our international residency program.
ABOUT THE 1st INTERNATIONAL LITOGRAPHY ENCOUNTER
Organized by La Cárcova Museum, with the general coordination of Lorena Pradal in charge of the Lithography Workshop, the meeting had the goal of favoring the exchange of technical and conceptual aspects related to printmaking, especially the lithographic technique, the incorporation of new resources and the dynamics of their teaching in art institutions.
The 3-days meeting offered lectures, panels, exhibitions of prints and theoretical-practical workshops around the role of printmaking today and their functions within the expressive linguistic repertoire in the visual arts, and involved the participation of researchers, specialists and both national and international artists. Alicia Candiani, director of ´ace, was invited to participate in one of the panels. Her lecture’s topic was About the non-specificity of contemporary graphics: lithography in other contexts, with special focus on the projects in litho procedures made by the artist in residence among the ´acePIRAR program.
