International Exchange Project for Kick Arts

Thinking of Place, an international exchange project, is a collaborative venture between Inkmasters Cairns Inc and four other print groups: Goldfields Printmakers (Victoria), Melbourne Printmakers Group, North Island Printmakers (New Zealand) and Te Wai Pounamu Printmakers (New Zealand). 

Artists have engaged with the theme for Thinking of Place with works related to concepts of land, country, the built and natural environment, colonization, ancestral connections, identity and imagined locations. 

Works by members of the five printmaking groups will be exhibited at KickArts Contemporary Arts (stage 1) in Cairns, 8 June to 18 July 2015 and at Eastside Gallery, Christchurch, New Zealand, 29 June to18 July 2015.
The suite of original prints will subsequently be shown at The Depot Artspace, Auckland, New Zealand from 29 Aug to 16 Sept 2015, KickArts Contemporary Arts (stage 2) Cairns from 11 January to 20 Feb 2016 and Post Office Gallery, Federation University, Ballarat in April 2016.
