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.
