4×4: A Printeresting Curatorial Project

Printeresting is excited to announce our next curatorial venture, 4×4.

For the 4×4 exhibition three artists and one art collective will occupy the four walls of the Martin Art Gallery. We saw the white cube of the gallery as an arena; each artist is given one very large white wall as a point of departure. Our intention is not to stage a reality show challenge for your attention, but to give these artists a chance to build a new reality as they might like to imagine it.

The artists in 4×4 all demolish the historical expectations of print. Each artist creates work that leaves one in a state of awe and wonder. Rob Swainston works with traditional print processes but he leaves frame behind as he uses print to construct startling paper monuments. Eva Wylie brings a fresh take on appropriation and collage with her amazing site specific installations. Gary Kachadourian’s art work can be described as simultaneously, mundane, delicate, outrageous and truly, monumental. And what has not been said before about Space 1026? They are a spaceship powered by a poly-vocal engine that runs on glee and leaves piles of art in its wake.

Four walls, four explosive print installations. What more can we say?

Featured Artists:

Gary Kachadourian

Rob Swainston

Eva Wylie

Space 1026

This exhibition will take place at theMartin Art Gallery at Muhlenberg College, running from November 17-December 18th, with an opening reception on the 17th from 4-6pm. Anyone who makes the trek to the opening can expect to be rewarded with some amazing art and four take-away posters designed by the artists commemorating the event.

In the lead-up to the exhibition we will try to post some behind-the-scenes studio visits with the participating artists, and I’m sure the installation will provide a great opportunity to see the artists at work with students installing their work. So keep your eyes peeled for upcoming posts.
