The Visceral Hand - Curated by Joshua Johnson and Michael Weigman
The Visceral Hand

Traditional printmaking is built on the foundation of the physical mark. Carving into a woodblock, engraving into a copper plate, drawing on a stone ?these techniques rely on the labor, draftsmanship, and skill of the artist. Such techniques allow artists to communicate social and internal issues while presenting a point of view with a sensibility and directness beyond that of photographic replication.

Visceral, hand-drawn images have engaged the public for centuries, and have been a central component in the documentation of human folly. Oftentimes exposing the corruption and brutality of a regime, such as in Goya's Disasters of War, or diminishing the romanticized nature of a conflict, as seen in Otto Dix's Der Kriegetchings. Their images remain relevant day due to the frank depiction of violence as seen through the artist.

This exchange is meant to celebrate this tradition; to push artists to confront issues of violence and conflict directly, or to challenge the legacy of this tradition. Selected artists can use traditional printmaking techniques (Woodcut, Intaglio, Serigraphy, Lithography etc.). No digital print work will be accepted. All imagery must be created by the artists, not appropriated, unless directly through the artist's own mark making.
