Center for Contemporary Printmaking presents the annual members' exhibition Re:Location that will open on April 3, 2016, and run through May 22. The Opening Reception and Award Ceremony will take place on Sunday, April 3, from 2pm to 5pm.
This exhibition asks artists to consider the role location plays in their life and practice. Would they be the same if they lived someplace else? Where would their ideal place be? How have their present and past residences shaped who they are and their creativity? This exhibition provides CCP members the chance to interpret their world through the art of the print. We ask submitting artists to look back on the places that have made an impact on them and have shaped their lives today.
Nomi Silverman, CCP's 2015 Best in Show Award Recipient will present, Refugees in the lithography room in conjunction with Re:Location. When asked about the works Silverman explained, "In numbers equivalent to the population of the United Kingdom, the greatest migration in the world to date, refugees, like a raging river, stream across borders. They are forced by necessity – be it war, famine, persecution or other insurmountable challenges to leave all they know. They are isolated and alone, separated from family and home, carrying only a small backpack with all their possessions, most to never return."
