Inova presents two exhibitions in conjunction with the annual Southern Graphic Council (SGC) International conference, Print: MKE, being held March 20 – 23, 2013, organized by the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design (MIAD) and The Peck School of the Arts at UWM. Inova’s Makers in Print features the work of artists from South Africa, South Korea and Mexico. Coordinating curators from these countries have selected artists whose work demonstrates a range of innovative techniques and meaningful approaches to this time-honored genre. Exhibiting artists from South Africa: Paul Edmunds, Paul Emmanuel, William Kentridge, David Koloane, Terry Kurgan and Chloe Reid. From South Korea: Sanggon Chung, Young-Hoon Kim, Oh-Shin Kwon, Sujin Shin, Sang-Mi Yoo. From Mexico, portfolios from three print workshops — Escuela de Cultura Popular Martires del 68, Máquina Binaria Ediciones, and Artistas Veracruzanos Bajo la Ceiba — will be exhibited. MIAD’s Layton Gallery has a partner exhibition of works by artists from Argentina, China, and Poland.
The awards exhibition celebrates the careers of Lesley Dill (New York, NY), Fran Myers (Hollandale, WI) and Alison Saar (Los Angeles, CA). Each artist will be represented by a concise overview of recent print works.
