Southern Press exhibition dates extended

Posted: 19 January 2012 by ESCALA in Exhibitions  

If you haven't had a chance to see Southern Press: Prints from Brazil, Paraguay and Chile yet at firstsite in Colchester then we've got great news for you!  We have extended the exhibition dates to Sunday 12 February 2012.  We are happy to say that over 16,000 people have visited ESCALA's inaugural exhibition in firstsite and have enjoyed a great selection of works from the Collection. 

The selection, from the ESCALA Collection, focuses on the works of thirteen printmakers, including Oswaldo Goeldi, Lívio Abramo, Antonio Henrique Amaral, Olga Blinder, Nemesio Antúnez and other key practitioners from the 1950s, 60s and 70s. It showcases work from a period when printing enjoyed a prominent position in art education, as well as in national and international exhibition circuits, and when debates about the medium's artistic status, and the uptake of abstraction by printers, were hotly contested.
