Interested in making something at <a href="http://www.moma.org/visit/calendar/exhibitions/1227" target=blank">Print Studio</a> but don’t know where to start? Try creating a work incorporating this month’s <a href="http://www.moma.org/explore/inside_out/2012/02/13/ten-minute-talk-collective-task-at-print-studio/" target=blank">Collective</a> <a href="http://www.moma.org/visit/calendar/events/14415" target=blank">Task</a>, adapted from artist Lisa Sanditz’s original task: Make something while honoring the spirit of Freecycle. That is, all materials used in the project must be used, borrowed and bartered.
This week at Print Studio, we invite you to participate in the first of three public programs organized by Triple Canopy as part of a series called Miscellaneous Uncatalogued Material that “explores the evolution of print-based artwork in recent decades, from the revival of traditional techniques to the employment of new digital technologies.”
As part of Print Studio, we offer a weekly series of short talks focusing on issues related to the medium of print and the sustainability of ideas within the context of modern and contemporary art. During these Ten-Minute Talks, a variety of MoMA staff—from conservators to librarians and archivists—as well as guest artists and educators, share their expertise, offering insight on a variety of topics and a special behind-the-scenes look at MoMA’s engagement with the medium of print and selected Print Studio projects.
This week poet Robert Fitterman discusses the ongoing Collective Task project and its re-imagined version for Print Studio. In this entertaining video, Fitterman is in conversation with Lanny Jordan Jackson, the current curator of the Collective Task project.
We encourage you to create a print in response to this week’s task, adapted from Lisa Sanditz’s original task: “Make something while honoring the spirit of Freecycle. That is, all materials used in the project must be used, borrowed and bartered.”
Typically when drawing, painting, or printmaking an artist uses a few different materials such as paper or canvas, as well as ink, pencils, or paint.… what if all you needed to make your print was your smart phone or another gadget with a creative drawing app installed?
