JUROR: Miguel A. Aragón
Selecting work for this exhibition was a challenging task; with close to 600 entries from 209 applicants, I had the responsibility to curate a selection of prints that represented the medium while they also spoke to concepts that surpassed technique.
While reviewing the entries, I realized that all of the applicants reflected a strong grasping of technique or subject matter; instead of limiting my selection based on one curatorial concept, I selected 50 pieces that represent a balance between both, process and idea, within their work. These 50 artists are pushing the boundaries of the printmaking media beyond skill to create relevant conversations that are easily approachable as well as timeless.
