BOX BLUR / Catharine Clark Gallery
BOX BLUR presents The Broadside in Action. A LIVE Letterpress Experience, every Saturday from February 22 – March 28, 2020. Working in collaboration with Mullowney Printing principal and master printer Paul Mullowney, and assisted by master printers Erin McAdams, Harry Schneider, and assistant Wendy Liu, artists will be given the opportunity to interpret the role, function and meaning of the printed single sheet broadside in the 21stcentury. Viewers will have the opportunity to witness printmaking in action, to learn about technique and possibilities for art making on a letterpress.In preparation for the project, invited artists work with master printers at Mullowney Printing’s letterpress studio at Minnesota Street Project working through ideas, creation of matrices, proofing, and, finally, creating an image for live printing in the gallery.
For the second year, the gallery announces an important partnership with Dance Film SF that continues to enable BOX BLUR to be fiscally sponsored.
