Throw out your masters: Risograph printing across North America
Curated by Void Gallery
May 16 to June 22, 2019
Opening: Thursday May 16, 8pm
Curated by Void Gallery, 'Throw out your masters' will showcase works from a number of Risograph studios across Canada, North America and beyond. Each studio is represented by a single work or small body of works by a professional artist associated with the studio. Void is also working with three local artists (Alani Caruso-Fitterer, Jen Schier, and Isaac Thomas) in the form of mini residencies, teaching them the methods of Risograph printing and resulting in the production of a work by each artist for the exhibition. The works by the selected professional artists (local, national, and international) will be displayed on the gallery walls, while further prints and the ephemera of Risograph materials from each studio will be displayed in a “reading room” set-up in the gallery as part of the show, available for visitors to look through. Following the exhibition, all Risograph materials will be collected into Void's archive and made available as inspiration for members.
