IMPACT7 is an international multi-disciplinary printmaking conference hosted by the Faculty of Art & Design, Monash University. Exploring the multiple identity of print, and the cross-disciplinary nature of print media internationally, speakers and artists involved with IMPACT7 consider the heterogeneous nature of contemporary culture. Often located at the intersections of disciplines and media, contemporary culture is a powerful political vehicle, generating diverse discourses and debates by virtue of its wide dissemination and ability to offer counterpoints to the norm. The exhibition at the Faculty Gallery reflects the issues explored in the conference through six artists who use printmaking to facilitate their ideas.
Exhibition: September 19 / October 29 2011
