DAGC Invite - Misprint Messiahs 1

For this exhibition the Artists aims to turn the gallery at DAGC into a laboratory for exploring the possibilities of the silkscreen process, with the artists printing on a variety of surfaces and producing both unique and editioned works. During the first two weeks of the exhibition period, the artists will be in active production mode at the gallery, expanding the space of the recently set-up DAGC silkscreen studio to encompass the entire exhibition area, and offering a glimpse into their working process. Artworks will be visible in various stages of completion. After these two weeks, the residue of the artists’ labor will be left on view, along with whatever pieces they manage to complete.
