Printmaking by ECAL

du 27 mars au 31 mai 2015

As part of its mission to showcase contemporary creativity, the Cabinet cantonal des estampes presents its recently acquired holdings of editions by the ECAL/University of Art and Design Lausanne. ECAL’s publishing activities begin in 1995. Their aim is to involve students in practical projects and preserve a record of the artists who teach or are active at the institution.

The initial phase, lasting until 1999, is concerned mainly with multiples; from 2007 a new project shifts the focus to lithography and screen printing. The corpus of some 70 prints produced since that time bears witness to the diversity of contemporary artistic approaches. John M Armleder, Pierre Charpin, Constance Guisset, Fabrice Gygi, Alex Hanimann, David Hominal, Helen Marten, Karim Noureldin, Mai-Thu Perret and Olivier Saudan reveal their preoccupation with the art of the print and the graphic resources available within the multiplied image.
