Opening Thursday, February 13th at Kala Art Institute, Berkeley is “Approaching Zero – At the Frontier of Contemporary Printmaking,” a group exhibition featuring work by Miguel A. Aragón (Mexico/USA), Stella Ebner (NY, USA), Zarina Hashmi (India/USA), Walter Jule (Canada), Koseki Ono (Japan), and Katsutoshi Yuasa (Japan). Delving into the medium of printmaking, this exhibition investigates artists who incorporate various systematic printmaking methods while pushing the boundaries of print-based work. Each of these artists uses different printmaking methods and creates distinctive artwork. Printmaking often requires accurate and detailed manual hand labor. These artists all share a common strategy or characteristic: they master a particular printmaking technique as a foundation and then go to the very limits of their own system. Despite their machine-like systematic labor, we see unique distortions and textures created by the human hand.  This exhibition is curated by Mayumi Hamanaka.


Opening Reception: Thursday, February 13, 2014. 6-8pm


“Approaching Zero – At the Frontier of Contemporary Printmaking” will be on view through April 5, 2013.
