Ctrl+P @ Arlington Arts Center

"Ctrl+P: New Directions in Printmaking" at Arlington Arts Center (AAC)

For the summer of 2012, the AAC invited curators Julie Chae and Kristina Bilonick to explore print media and the artists who are approaching this discipline through non-traditional processes, forms and means of dissemination and distribution. Among the many themes explored is the tension between the "uniqueness" of art and the traditional notion of printmaking as "multiples." The exhibition will be on view at the Arlington Arts Center from June 22 – September 16, 2012. At 17,000 square feet, the AAC is one of the largest non-federal venues for contemporary art in the Washington, DC metropolitan area.
