SHIM is pleased to announce RESPONSE, the inaugural exhibition from Vox Populi Print Collective. The artists in RESPONSE utilize a range of print media to express their views on the political climate of our time. Vox Populi Print Collective is a newly formed artist guild created to honor and promote printmaking as fine art. Joining the guild provides connectivity and offers future exhibition opportunities for the member artists.
The Vox Populi Print Collective was founded in early 2017 by artists Barry Roal Carlsen and Peter Hopkins as a modern-day printmaking guild. The goal is not only to showcase printmakers, but to re-imagine printmaking as both a special and unique craft, providing a model for a new and perfectly timed voice for low-cost, low-risk group art making. The edition and the ease of transporting prints makes this all possible. We suggest that the real “hidden” history of printmaking is that it is NOT a solely university-based curriculum, periferal to the broader art world, but is a vital global voice against oppressive structures. Our guild is built on a simple concept, as we band together, greater opportunities are available to each of us. Large changes can be made from small beginnings, and the beginning is now.
SHIM is a new art exhibition company that fills the gaps in the art world by providing exhibition opportunities to artists, curators, galleries, universities, and other organizations and affiliations with exhibition space for their projects.
