SWEAT Broadsheet Collaboration
January 22, 2016 - April 2, 2016
FEATURED ARTIST PROJECT
Organized by Alexander Campos, Executive Director & Curator, The Center for Book Arts
The SWEAT Broadsheet Collaboration is a collaborative effort of South Florida artists and writers. The 46 artists and 40 participating writers were interested in the intersection of their respective genres – that is, artists interested in text and book arts, and poets and fiction writers attracted to visual images. Through a series of planned meetings, artists and writers from Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties met, shared their work and began to collaborate to create varied and vibrant limited edition artworks.
This exhibition consists of seventy-eight broadsheets, fine art prints created in a wide variety of media. Media included in the exhibition include letterpress, silkscreen, etching, digital pigment prints, relief prints, monoprints and many forms of hand work, including hand coloring, hand-cut paper and applique on fabric. The SWEAT Broadsheet is an ongoing process of collaboration that stimulates new concepts and methodology.
Artists include Gary Moore, Michelle Weinberg, Lea Nickless, Tom Virgin, Carol Todaro, Laura Tan, Alfredo Useche, Rosemarie Chiarlone, and Sara Stites.
Support for the Center for Book Arts’ Visual Arts Program is provided, in part, by the New York State Council on the Arts, with the support of Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, and by the National Endowment for the Arts.
