Thinking of Place ii is an international collaborative printmaking exhibition involving over 60 artists from Cairns, Ballarat, Melbourne, New Zealand, Ireland, Canada and Scotland.
The project is an ambitious cultural exchange, and fine art prints – made in limited editions and easily transported – are an ideal medium for such an exchange; participating artists each received a folio of 20 prints selected from the editions of fellow printmakers. The Thinking of Place ii artists were asked: How do memories attach to place, and is the concept of place confined to a particular time? The collective works present a spectrum of encounters as each artist investigates their own ideas of displacement, personal narratives, journeys and associations with place.
