Curatorial Statement

The Spudnik Press Cooperative Curatorial Statement

Spudnik Press exhibitions amplify the impact of resources at Spudnik Press by providing opportunities for artists and audiences to move through a variety of creative roles: from making to experiencing, from learning to teaching.

Spudnik Press showcases work that has ongoing relevance to our mission and vision, while also encouraging a breadth of community participation.  Exhibitions create an active platform to expand and diversify our cooperative.

To achieve these goals, Spudnik Press exhibitions:

  • Are selected by a curatorial committee of active members.
  • Emphasize printmaking and print-based projects within contemporary art practices.
  • Showcase the creative, analytical and/or technical processes of art making.
  • Feature exceptional projects, whether produced at Spudnik Press or beyond.
  • Engage diverse levels of professional experience.

Spudnik Press exhibitions offer exhibiting artists opportunities to:

  • Produce new fine art prints.
  • Present corresponding educational programming.
  • Present Artist Talks.
