Art History loves to tell the story of the perfect masterpiece done by the genius but all artists know that quite often outstanding work is created through failure rather than success.
Printmaking is a complex process that offers plenty of opportunities for failure and mistake.
All artists in this show share this experience and offer us work that they created after being inspired by a mistake.
We choose to call the show “zureta”, because misaligned plates often have inspired a new work.
We are happy to welcome young artists from 19 Universities out of 14 Countries and 5 Continents to share their “zureta moment” with us.
Dates: May 26 (Fri) - May 28 (Sun), 2017
Hours: 10:00-18:00 (Entry by 17:30)
Keynote Speakers: Lisa Bulawsky, Washington University St. Louis; Jan Svenungsson, University of applied Arts Vienna; Miida Seiichiro, Tokyo University of the Arts
Misalignments, like misprints or mistakes and misunderstandings, are a constant source for innovation. They are a worldwide engine powering creativity.
The symposium will bring together artists and scholars from different countries to discuss how the unexpected result of a mistake can trigger the creation of new art works.
As all the participants share the use of print making as means of artistic expression, we hope the symposium will allow to learn how colleagues all over the world make use the inspiration from failure.
Printmaking has its origin in the creation of mass media, and a world that is dominated by the media needs tools to question what mistakes mean to it.
