Part of the Artlab Contemporary Print programme, Talking Prints is a series of talks by artists exploring issues within contemporary printmaking, discussing current research, new developments in technologies and professional studio practice. Following the talk, there will be opportunity to network and view the artist’s portfolio.
Artist, researcher & lecturer Paul Laidler will deliver the first talk in this series.
Paul Laidler is a Research Fellow working in the field of fine art digital print at the Centre For Fine Print Research, University of the West of England, Bristol. As a researcher, artist, printer, lecturer and more recently ‘a publisher’ Paul’s activities cover a broad spectrum of interests within graphic orientated practices.
For the Talking Prints lecture series Paul will discuss his collaborative work with artists at the Centre for Fine Print Research and his recent development of a specialist digital print publishing practice entitled CFPR Editions. Collectively these collaborative print production models form a practice led approach to begin considering the evolving nature of digital technology and its potential influence upon established definitions and practices within the field of printmaking.
Talking Prints will take place in Harris Museum & Art Gallery, in the new Discover Preston space, as part of the Digital Aesthetic 3 2012 programme. Refreshments provided.
Wednesday 14 November 6pm. Free to attend, booking essential. Contact the Harris Museum & Art Gallery to book your place: firstname.lastname@example.org or 01772 905414
