Breaking with tradition is the key theme behind an exhibition showcasing printworks by art students, on at the Fisher Gallery

About 30 third and fourth year student print artists of the Manukau Institute of Technology, Elam Fine Art School and the Auckland Institute of Technology have contributed to the exhibition, which opens on 23 January.

The brainchild of MIT Art Lecturer Steve Lovett, Fissure explores innovative print coming out of Auckland's main art schools.

‘Content, rather than form is the driving force behind the works’ he says. ‘The students show a common concern for new directions in print, moving away from the focus on the actual process of print making.’

A wide range of print styles is on show, from etching to works created using computer technology. According to Steve, the students view the mode of creation as merely a tool, to help express the all important idea.

Renowned artist Carole Shepheard will host a forum on the last day, discussing New Print. Billy McQueen will also lead a one day practical workshop to open up the mysteries of computer technology in print, using contemporary attitudes and practice.
