New Australian Printmaking, a project by the NGV and Australian Print Workshop, features new work by artists Megan Cope, Shaun Gladwell, Tim Maguire and Patricia Piccinini, each a recipient of an Australian Print
Workshop Artist Fellowship. With varied experiences in printmaking, these artists, through their collaborations with APW’s master printers, reveal the rich possibilities of the print medium.
With a lead essay by Quentin Sprague, and new essays by NGV curators Jessica Cole, Maggie Finch, Shonae Hobson and Katharina Prugger; more than 60 images of the artists’ work reproduced in full colour; an interview
with APW printers Martin King and Simon White; and documentary photographs, New Australian Printmaking reveals the many ways in which the print medium continues to dynamically enhance contemporary art practice.
