DESCRIPTION

Beginning on February 5, 2010 SOMArts Cultural Center’s Main Gallery invites the public to experience Prints Byte: the cutting edge of printmaking, an exploration of experimental, digital, and installation-based printmaking.  Bay Area printmaking has inherited significant legacies of experimentalism and innovation, both in the arenas of aesthetics and political activism, and in today’s digital moment, printmaking continues to thrive and grow in new directions.  Co-Curated by Justin Hoover and Hanna Regev, Prints Byte looks at new ways that the field of printmaking is redefining itself with new technologies, new processes and new direction.
