Location: The Biscuit Factory, Newcastle Upon Tyne
The Biscuit Factory is thrilled to once again be included in Northern Print’s International Print Biennale this autumn. The Biennale is a fantastic addition to the region’s cultural calendar with a wide programme of exhibitions and events. It is a celebration of the role of print in contemporary artists’ practice and is the only event of its kind in the UK.
For our contribution, the gallery will be hosting Leicester Print Workshop’s touring exhibition SMALL PRINT INTERNATIONAL, which visits six cities during 2016 and 2017. The exhibition includes work from 90 artists from 18 countries, with over 150 original prints of 100 square centimetres or less. The work was selected by highly regarded artists Angela Harding and Wuon-Gean Ho, and Jennifer Ramkalawon, who works as the Curator of Western Modern and Contemporary Graphic Works, at the British Museum.
The exhibition will be a showcase for the many varied processes involved in creating prints, with linocuts, etchings, screen prints and lithographs all represented in glorious miniature. As always, all the work will be available to purchase.
