In September, 2014, The Arts Center will be hosting the first ever East Coast National Screenprint Biennial. There is currently no screenprint biennial in the United States, and this exhibition will be an opportunity to begin a dialog that can expand the discipline of screenprinting and its place in the world of art. This exhibition will showcase a range of screenprint-based art applications, from framed, editioned prints, to installation, sculpture, video, ephemera, and posters. This invitational exhibition will in no way seek to act as a survey or “who’s-who” of screenprinting, but will assemble an exhibition that is consistent in showcasing artists who utilize adventurous, relevant, and passionate takes on the screenprinted medium. The East Coast National Screenprint Biennial is the curatorial project of Nathan Meltz, printmaker and lecturer in the Art Department of the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY.
