Print + Intervene: An Incomplete Survey of Print Actions in Contemporary Art
Wednesday, September 12, 7pm
at Kala Gallery
Independent curator and writer Christian L. Frock presents a broad survey of the strategic use of print media as a form of intervention by contemporary artists in the public realm, inclusive of a wide range of techniques from traditional printmaking to digital output.
Invisible Venue, founded and directed by Frock since 2005, collaborates with artists to present art in unexpected settings. It is a small, free-floating, non-bureaucratic, contextually open-ended forum that encourages artists to make art that takes place in and engages with the world at large.
Projects include temporary, site-specific work in the built environment and online. Recent works include Here and Now, a series of artist interventions in historic architecture organized by Mills Art Museum, and a print intervention in Public Art Dialogue, published by Routledge.
Frock is a regular contributor to art ltd., Art Practical, SFArts.org, and KQED Visual Art, and teaches graduate seminars in the art and writing program at California Institute of Integral Studies.
