​To think that we instinctively recognize the best is fatuous arrogance. When we say, ‘We know what we like,’ we really mean, ‘We like what we know.’ And if what you know isn’t good taste, what you like won’t be good taste. Joad, the British philosopher, made this point clear. He wrote: ‘Good taste is not instinctive, but acquired.'”

Talk: Matrix. Where Things Happen.

March 4 | Centre for Fine Print Research, University of the West of England

A talk by Katerina Kyselica on 20th century Central European artists who have embraced the notion of change in printmaking.

 

When thinking of the 20th century Central and Eastern European print, an image of fantasy and imaginative artworks based in drawing typically emerges. It reveals stunning impressions of exquisitely crafted printing plates. The 1960s brought new art tendencies also to the East, behind the Iron Curtain. The risk-seeking artists took interest in events, actions, experiments and searching. Some began appreciating matrix—the basic component of all printmaking, the carrier of traces—as an ultimate space for testing artistic concepts and theories, and documenting the phases of change.

Katerina Kyselica: For Me, For You, For Me and You

March 2 - April 16 | Centre for Fine Print Research, University of the West of England

Exhibition of Katerina Kyselica's artist's book, including her recent works "Poppy" and "For Me, For You, For Me and You," at the Centre for Fine Print Research at the University of the West of England in Bristol. Katerina creates books as destinations for playful encounters and poetic transpositions. Constructed using traditional media—collage, drawing and printmaking, these intimate objects reveal narratives that pose questions about identity and belonging.

Talk with the artist is scheduled for Thursday, March 5, 12:00 - 1:00 pm. >> Read more
