Yesterday marked the beginning of MoMA’s newest educational program Print/Studio. The printmaking studio and workshop program plans to engage visitors with various processes of printmaking, and it was organized in conjunction with the museum’s upcoming Print/Out exhibition. While the show is intended to illustrate the evolution of artistic practice as it relates to printmaking, Print/Studio promises to be a dynamic space designed to engage visitors in the history and process of print.
Sarah Kennedy, associate educator of the museum’s Lab Programs, who organized the project, explained that, “We wanted to offer visitors a way to look at the medium of print but have hands on experiences through that.”
Visitors have access to a number of top notch computers, printers, scanners and digital tools. During the project, MoMA’s educational lobby will temporarily serve as the Midtown Manhattan branch of the Gowanus-based Reanimation Library, a collection of re-purposed books acquired for their visual content and intended as material and inspiration for artists, designers and writers.
As part of this “print show,” the museum will be offering a series of 10-minute talks by MoMA staff, artists, conservators and educators. Participating speakers include MoMA conservators Karl Buchberg and Scott Gerson, master printer and director of the Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop, Phil Sander, and MoMA bibliographer and curator David Senior in conversation with artist Emily Roysdon. Each talk will be available weekly on the Print/Studio blog.
On February 15, 27 and March 7 from 2:30-4 pm the editorial collective and online magazine Triple Canopy will be holding discussions on the nature of publication, and they will offer participants the chance to work on a publication composed of those discussions.
