Sameness and Otherness in Contemporary Printmedia

March 17, 2023 - August 27, 2023

Following the 2020 exhibition Multiple Ones, UNF Associate Professor, artist and curator Sheila Goloborotko continues her exploration of how artists of today are expanding the printmaking process. Print+ focuses on the importance of showcasing artwork where diversity, equity, accessibility, and inclusion create an essential and fertile ecology.  

The diverse group of artists in this exhibition use one or more printing elements; the inks, the matrixes, the paper, the equipment, or the print, but the resulting artwork can range from two-dimensional and three-dimensional to videos; from hospital gowns to quilts, from handkerchiefs to cotton; from folded paper to photographs. Each work tells a unique story as varied as the lives of the participating artists. In the curator's words: “Each with their own unique experiences and intersectionalities would much rather we focus on how they see the world and the risks they take to show it to us so honestly.”  

Curated by UNF Associate Professor Sheila Goloborotko. This exhibition was originally presented at the Hunterdon Art Museum, Clinton, NJ, in 2021. 

The UNF Gallery at MOCA Jacksonville is programmed in collaboration with the Department of Art, Art History, and Design at the University of North Florida (UNF).
