The 2010 Mid America Print Council Conference "New World/Old World" explores places where tradition and experimentation meet; between generations, media and technique, private studios and public events, printmakers increasingly embrace a mixture of practices from different sources. As we enter a new decade of printmaking with an expansive mindset, we look for ways in which our practice finds a context in contemporary art by re-inventing tradition. The MAPC 2010 conference facilitates dialogues between eras and technologies.
MAPC 2010 specifically aims to engage a younger generation of students and artists and to interface with the public in an active and participatory way. We will also focus on the growing diversity of communities in the Twin Cities, particularly showcasing Latino artists. We will celebrate the tradition of our media and its dialogue with new forms as we seek to expand the parameters of our discussion and embrace and impact a larger community.
MAPC 2010 will also highlight the Twin Cities' rich print community including major museums and cultural institutions, book arts and letterpress, rock poster screen-printers, comic book artists, fine arts presses, community education studios and street/stencil artists, among others.
