26°S 121°E – On the Map | Mundaring

Country Arts WA

Curated by Laura A Taylor, 26°S 121°E – On the Map showcases contemporary work from 35 WA print artists and presents a tantalising glimpse of the diversity of print practices that can be found between Broome and Albany.

A number of selected pieces represent well-known WA printmakers, while others introduce innovative younger artists who are steadily establishing a reputation of their own. However, the exhibition pays homage to all WA artists working in the ancient art form of ‘print making’ – artists who incorporate various techniques (for example, etching, woodcut, lithography, screen-printing, transfer) or reinterpret these technical processes into a modern narrative that speaks to a world that increasingly values the handmade over the mass-produced, and seeks out the artisan over the anonymous.

26°S 121°E – On the Map testifies that while geographical location may inform these artists’ works it is no barrier to plugging into the global contemporary arts network
