Foundation Projects presents OFF-REGISTER, a traveling group exhibition of experimental printmaking.
The OFF-REGISTER exhibition will showcase prints by a collection of international artists and graphic
designers associated through the professional practice of commercial print design, but that do not
consider themselves printmakers. Artists include: Robin Cameron, Michael Coleman, Justin Fines,
Ryan Giese, Grotesk vs. Lowrider [collaboration], Steven Harrington, Maya Hayuk, Cody Hudson,
Evan Hecox, Ben Loiz, Geoff McFetridge, Colin Metcalf, Andy Mueller, Michael Perry, Jon Resh,
Joel Speasmaker, Todd St. John, Andrew Townsend, David J. Weissberg, WEWORKFORTHEM:
Michael Cina + Michael Young [collaboration], and Rory Wilson.
This exhibition explores the relationship these artists and graphic designers have to printing
and how commercial processes may inform more traditional methods of fine art print making.
The title, OFF-REGISTER, refers to a mis-registered color plate pass during printing, as well
as acknowledging the artists and designers experimentation with the various techniques of
traditional printmaking. Each artist will present one print, produced in editions, that utilize and
experiment with various traditional fine art printmaking techniques: serigraphy, lithography,
etching, various transfer and block printing, as well as incorporating unconventional methods
and experimental techniques of print impressions.
