[BKARTS] Graphic Reality & Off the Grid at Columbia Book & Paper

Columbia College Chicago¹s Center for Book & Paper Arts
1104 S. Wabash Ave.  Chicago, IL 60605
January 13 ­ February 24, 2007
Opening Reception January 12, 5:30­7:30
GRAPHIC REALITY gathers seven of the best contemporary Mexican printmakers.
Each one of these artists has an important role in revitalizing and
promoting the graphic arts throughout Mexico and the United States. They are
also credited with creating a unique graphic universe, and in some cases, a
new school or wave of art in Mexico, where the graphic art tradition has
always been strong. Artists represented: Demian Flores (Oaxaca-Mexico City),
Oscar Camilo de las Flores (Oaxaca/Canada), Caroline Corgert (San Luis
Potosi), Hugo Sanchez (Tijuana), Joel Rendon (Huixquilucan/Toluca/Mexico
City), Ixrael (New York), and Artemio Rodriguez (Los Angeles). This
exhibition is sponsored by the International Print Center New York.
OFF THE GRID The title of the exhibition Off the Grid, refers to graphic
designs that use a free-style visual approach, rather than the traditional
vertical/horizontal axis method.  While the range of aesthetics in Off the
Grid is broad, nearly all of the work is exclusively text and letterform
based.  The printing processes in Off the Grid range from letterpress
printing to digital reproduction.  The artists represented in Off the Grid
exploit the illustrative and graphic possibilities inherent in letterforms.
If the work of the graphic designer is to deliver a message to the public,
the messages in Off the Grid are brought with supreme creativity and style.
This exciting exhibition is a national sampling of the most original printed
work today.
Free and open to the Public
Gallery Hours: Monday ­ Saturday, 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM
