Center for Contemporary Prints’ 7th Biennial FOOTPRINT International Exhibition is NOW open and available for visitors by appointment. Anyone wishing to see the show, please call or email CCP at (203) 899-7999 or email@example.com to check availability.
The Center for Contemporary Printmaking’s Footprint International Competition 2020, is an opportunity for the presentation of current trends and innovations in contemporary printmaking within the bounds of the one square foot (12” x 12”) configuration. The square format was uncommon in art until the advent of abstraction and presents distinct challenges of composition and expression. Within these precise limits, artists must confront a space and create visual order and formal structure.
This year’s juror, Jane Kinsman, Distinguished Adjunct Curator, previously Senior Curator of International Prints, Drawings and Illustrated Books, National Gallery of Australia, reviewed 319 print submissions from 180 artists representing eighteen countries. Kinsman selected 95 works from 91 artists representing 21 states and 13 countries.
