It’s all Duncan all the time this week. This week’s show is a three for the price of one deal!

In preparation for the biggest printmaking event of the year, the Southern Graphics Council meeting for 2009 hosted by Chicago’s Columbia College, Duncan interrogates Mark Pascale (Curator of Prints and Drawings, Art Institute of Chicago), Debora Wood (Senior Curator, Northwestern University’s Mary and Leigh Block Museum) and Christine Tarkowski (Associate Professor, Fiber and Material Studies, School of the Art Institute of Chicago) about the current state of Printmaking as an autonomous art form and its position in the academy.

We had better see all of you in Wicker Park this Friday for a kick ass set of openings at the Green Lantern, Roots and Culture, Llyod Dobbler, and Heaven!

See you then.

    That is a lovely photo of Mark’s sausage.

  2. Excellent show, Duncan. Great theme, great insightful guests (especially Mark), great questions. I see your interests and work as a paedagog cut out for you Duncan — expanding print teaching into edgier realms as some “crafts” departments have managed, like fiber. Could be exciting!

    One slight correction — the “dissing” of print was not always or even generally to do with that mythical enemy strawman “Painting” seeing p-m as non-unique (that is an anachronistic argument by way of the Neo-Conceptual dismissal of painting). It was usually due to printmaking’s dependence formally, stylistically and in content on “discoveries” in painting, drawing and sculpture. You hit the answer right on the nose when you mentioned several times that p-m needs to concentrate on its inherent strengths, seeing what it can do that others can’t (the democratic aspect, or at least the metaphor of democracy, has always interested me the most in p-m).

    The posts on this website become less and less coherent!

  5. Kudos to Mark Pascale for some great insights and straight talk on the show yesterday! (and for dropping my name…)

  6. What a sweet little show about multiple personalities. Nice exit jazz, must say. As always I feel I am a better person for listening. Thanks again for all the hard work.
