Tyler School of Art Printmaking is pleased to announce Print Think, a one-day conference on May 24, 2014 aimed at fostering conversation about the present and future of the print.
Printmaking has long appropriated technological innovation from the commercial printing industry to explore new possibilities of the matrix and multiple for the artist. For the first Tyler Print Think, we are focusing on the expanding role of 21st century rapid prototyping technology. Laser cutters, vinyl plotters, CNC Routers, and 3D printers are proven game changers for industrial designers and innovators of all sorts, but what can these exciting new tools produce in the hands of a printmaker?
Print Think will feature a panel discussion and presentations by noted artists, hands-on technical demonstrations at Tyler’s printmaking and digital fabrication labs, and lively conversations.
