Island Press

Gallery description

Island Press is a research-based printmaking workshop at Washington University in St. Louis that is committed to publishing innovative prints and multiples, educating students and the broader community about print media, and advancing the printmaking field. Visiting artists work in collaboration with the master printer, faculty, and students to create a reciprocal environment for education and research. Artists reap the benefits of dedicated, energetic student assistants to help push to new levels of complexity and originality in their projects. At the same time, students gain access and insight into both the technical and conceptual challenges that make each artist’s project unique. Fostering the creative relationships of the printmaking workshop is central to the Island Press mission.

Past visiting artists to Island Press include Michael Joo, Duane Slick, Lisa Anne Auerbach, Diana Guerrero-Maciá, Dario Robleto, Paula Wilson, Trenton Doyle Hancock, James Siena, Radcliffe Bailey, Nina Katchadourian, Shaun O’Dell, Nick Cave, Tom Friedman, Willie Cole, and Ann Hamilton, among many others.
