Paul Laidler will talk about a recent exhibition that he curated entitled "just press print" this title was chosen to highlight that although digital printing has a 'print' button, the significant elements of the creation of the digital print are often overlooked: the relationship and conversation between artist and publisher/ master printer, the iterations that are necessary to achieve the final print, the need for archiving and recording the process. The talk will also touch upon the evolving nature of digital technology and its potential influence upon established definitions and practices within the field of printmaking.
