The Australian Print Symposium, convened by Roger Butler, Senior Curator of Australian Prints and Drawings, has been held at the National Gallery of Australia since 1989.
With some 20 speakers and over 200 delegates attending, the symposium provides a lively forum to discuss prints and printmaking in Australia and the region. The papers, presented by leading artists, print curators and art historians, focus on contemporary practice in print production, book arts, street stencils and the like.
There will also be special tours of the National Gallery’s 11 new Indigenous galleries and Within without, the recently completed skyspace by James Turrell. There will be associated events in local galleries, the Megalo Print Workshop and the ANU Canberra School of Art.
