Due to the great successes the exhibition is prolonged from July 30th. 2011 to August 20th 2011.
The linoprint is experiencing a revival. Emerging artists are increasingly harnessing the linocut to explore contemporary themes, taking what was once simply considered a traditional graphic technique and elevating it as a legitimate form. Large format works, photo-realistic social commentary, installations and three-dimensional presentations are bringing new dimensions to the use of this medium.
The Berlin galleries WAGNER + PARTNER and HUNCHENTOOT are marking this development with a collaborative group exhibition entitled “LINOCUT-RELOADED”. Through the work of four artists from Berlin and Leipzig, the show examines the character of the linocut, the opportunity it offers the artist and how artists are reinvigorating the medium. The exhibition’s themes will be further explored in a discussion with the artists lead by Dr Ralf.F.Hartmann.
On the occasion of the exhibition a booklet is published.
