One colour at a time: Contemporary Screenprints

27 June - 12 Nov 2017

Fine Art screenprinting continues to flourish in South Africa as is evident in the group of young and emerging artists whose work is showcased on this exciting exhibition. The exhibition was collaboratively curated with three Johannesburg printing studios - Artists Proof Studio, Prints on Paper and Division of Visual Arts, Wits School of Arts (DIVA) - who each used their own criteria to select works.
