The contemporary art landscape has been marked by a move away from specialisation and towards a multidisciplinary approach to art-making. New Textures: Printmaking Re-imagined unpacks this hybridity within the context of printmaking. The exhibition presents artists whose practice lies outside of traditional printmaking, but whose work nonetheless demonstrates an affinity with the medium – specifically, its tactility.

More than any other medium, printmaking produces works in which an artist’s mark-making and processes are palpable. No matter their technique, prints are made through a series of rigorous and intensive steps, while the printed page itself contains the textured impressions of this labour. That is, prints have a tangible and implicit energy.

Each of the artists chosen to be included in New Textures produce works that — although not specifically within the realm of printmaking — explore tactility as a concept, manipulating the traditional two-dimensional surface to provide their works with a life and liveliness typically associated with printmaking.

Featuring guest artists Anna Dunnill, Aimee Howard, James Shaw, Meredith Woolnough and Maddy Young.

Curated by Holly Bridget Sperrin and Laura Kirkham
