Common Press at 10:
On exhibit April 4-September 2, 2016
The exhibition Common Press at 10 celebrates the 10th anniversary of the Common Press and its interdisciplinary approach to printing, teaching, and collaboration at the University of Pennsylvania. Expanding on these themes, the Common Press is hosting a symposium exploring contemporary letterpress printing, writing at the press, and the practice of teaching printing in a university setting. Speakers will discuss the state of printmaking in Philadelphia; the role of small, independent presses in contemporary printmaking and book arts; writing and publishing small editions; and current and future models for interdisciplinary teaching.
