Beyond the Archive: Ground Zero Printmakers Studio 1989-2019

Celebrating 30 Years of West Coast Print Culture

29 February – 27 June 2020

Victoria Arts Council

1800 Store Street

Opening Reception: Saturday February 29, 2020, 3-5pm

The Victoria Arts Council is thrilled to be working with Ground Zero Printmakers Studio on an exhibition celebrating thirty years of studio activity.

The exhibition brings together prints from the Ground Zero archive and newly created ‘response’ prints by current studio artists arising from an investigation of the historical work. Using the archived print collection as a point of reference, artists were invited to create new works, in dialogue with their predecessors. At the heart of this project is the artist’s investigation into their deep connection to all other artists and histories.
 Beyond the Archive provides a powerful opportunity to showcase the rich history of Ground Zero and the diversity of creative imagination in contemporary printmaking in the region.
