As part of the American University Museum’s continuing series of salon-style conversations in the Alper, Curator Matthew McLaughlin will lead a discussion surrounding the work of 19 local printmakers on view in the Alper space.
The District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia (DMV) region is full of boundaries and borders, both physical—like the state lines that divide these artists—and imagined—political ideology, economic class, gender identity, religious belief. These boundaries delineate spaces, groups, ideas, and more, but they are easily walked over, pushed through, and broken down. Furthermore, the artists featured in Crossing Boundaries and Breaking Borders: DMV Printmaking also question, push, and break down the traditional notions of what printmaking is as a technique, how it can be used, and how printmaking can be defined. Curated by Matthew McLaughlin. On view June 15-August 11, 2019.
