CROSSING PATHS: Marks by a select group of printmakers

25 Mar - 16 Apr

International prints on show at Switchback

The exhibition, from Colorado University USA, assembles an international group of printmakers from across America and the Pacific. It features a range of Native American artists including the renowned Jaune Quick-to-See Smith, whose work is held in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art and the Whitney Museum, New York.

The exhibition was assembled by Navajo printmaker and curator Associate Professor Melanie Yazzie, a past artist-in-residence at Gippsland Centre for Art and Design, Federation University. The result is an intriguing set of images in a wide range of printmaking media, which celebrate sense of place and exchange of ideas across distance and between cultures. Said exhibition co-curator Rodney Forbes, "Melanie Yazzie made many connections here with both indigenous and non-indigenous artists and it's great that this relationship has given us access to this exciting range of international printmakers."
