This year, the conference Capstone Panel will discuss an interesting point that was breached in a New York Times article about the New York Print Fair on November 3, 2011 (http://www.nytimes.com/2011/11/04/arts/design/print-fair-international-fine-printdealers-association.html). Ken Johnson seems to be most enthralled with the seesawing that takes place between the classic definition of a fine art print and the loose contemporary applications where prints can become more conceptually oriented, post-medium, or even events. In relation to our conference theme, “Navigating Currents,” we would like to explore the contradictions this medium has to offer (multiples v. one of a kind works, traditional v. non-traditional, past v. present), and where their combinations could lead us in the future.
Joining us in the discussion will be a sampling of our esteemed award winners and keynote speakers, including Nicola Lopez, April Katz, Kimberly Arp, Anita Jung, William J. Kitchens, and Phyllis McGibbon. Please join us for a panel discussion to be followed by questions and answers.
