I’m super pleased that my article ‘Printing Danishly’ was published in Imprint magazine, including the cover image by Julie Mehretu.
I wrote about Borch Editions, a print workshop in Copenhagen that publishes work by Tacita Dean, Julie Mehretu, Trine Søndergaard, Georg Baselitz, Olafur Eliasson and Mamma Andersson, among many others.

The exhibition The Devil had a Daughter was curated by Kirrily Hammond and reflected an enduring fascination for allegorical, theatrical and macabre representations apparent throughout the history of printmaking. Drawing upon various forms of print-media such as architectural installations, the artist’s book, performative works, found print-media, as well as longer standing print traditions, The Devil had a Daughter opened up the definition of ‘printmaking’ towards an expanded understanding of the role and form of print-media in contemporary art.
Featuring the work of Jason Greig, Stuart Ringholt, Sally Smart, Dylan Martorell, Pat Brassington, Mike Parr, Tony Garifalakis, Petr Herel and David Noonan, the exhibition was timed to coincide with IMPACT 7, the International Multi-disciplinary Printmaking Conference to be held at Monash University from 27-30 September 2011.

MUMA exhibition Self-Conscious: Contemporary Portraiture, allows us to dwell on one of the most fascinating subjects – ourselves. The act of self reflection, and the study of others, can be fraught, humorous and enlightening, whilst also revealing artistic processes and modes of philosophical address, laid bare in the work of art.
Featuring a range of works drawn from the Monash University Collection, this exhibition explores the many ways in which artists approach contemporary portraiture and represent different modes of identity. Artists include Fiona McMonagle, David Rosetzky, Mutlu Çerkez, Ronnie van Hout, Mike Parr, Matthew Griffin, Simryn Gill, James Lynch, Linda Marrinon and Eliza Hutchison.

Richard Lewer: Nobody likes a show off is a solo exhibition of work by Melbourne-based, New Zealand artist, Richard Lewer. It encompasses the scope of this artist’s practice, including painting, drawing, animation, installation and performance. Marked by a sceptical humour and a focus upon the darker sides of human behaviour, place and social identity, Lewer’s work involves close observation and highly subjective encounters with family, religious, sport and criminal subjects, leading to insightful and absurd narrative reflections on good and evil, life and mortality. Curated by Kirrily Hammond, this survey exhibition features keys works from public and private collections in Australia and New Zealand.

Emerging from the Romantic and Symbolist traditions, the evocative and enigmatic works in Reverie present alternative realms where the imagination is allowed free reign.
Drawn together from the Monash University Collection, the works in this exhibition share an ambiguity of form and meaning that relies on the viewer’s intuition to decipher and interpret.
Charles Blackman, Lynne Boyd, Peter Graham, Graeme Hare, Siri Hayes, Louise Hearman, Nicola Loder, Rosslynd Piggott and Ronnie Van Hout
