Event Description

As we move into a post-digital landscape where digital technologies aren’t a new presence but a familiar backdrop in a larger conversation, what are the ramifications in the print world? In what ways have artists and institutions adapted and incorporated it into traditional analog-maker approaches. How is it being successfully utilized and in what ways does it fall short of expectations? In this panel, four artist-practitioners discuss the way technology is utilized in their personal practice and/or at their affiliated institutions.

A panel discussion on the future of printmaking and printed artwork with an emphasis on the supplemental use of digital technologies. Each of the four presenters will do a 15-minute presentation about their work followed by a half hour of Q&A. Presenters will include Dr. Paul Laidler (Centre for Fine Print Research, University of West England), Professor Lari Gibbons (Associate Professor of Art, University of North Texas; Director of PRINT Press), Professor R. Eric McMaster (Lecturer, University of Texas at Austin; Manager, Digital Fabrication Lab), and Evelyn Contreras (graduate student, University of Texas at Austin). The panel will be moderated by Professor Jason Urban (Senior Lecturer, University of Texas at Austin).
