The Devil Had a Daughter - MUMA
the Devil had a Daughter Monash University Museum of Art
Caulfield Campus4 August – 1 October 2011
Curator: Kirrily Hammond
The Devil had a Daughter reflects an enduring fascination with allegorical,
theatrical and macabre imagery apparent throughout the history of printmaking.
Drawing upon various forms of print-media such as architectural installations,
the artist’s book, performative works, found printed matter, as well as longer
standing print traditions, this exhibition aims to open up the definition of
‘printmaking’ towards an expanded understanding of its role and form in
contemporary art. The Devil had a Daughter features the work of Jason Greig,
Stuart Ringholt, Sally Smart, Dylan Martorell, Pat Brassington, Mike Parr, Tony
Garifalakis, Petr Herel and David Noonan, and is timed to coincide with
IMPACT 7, the International Multidisciplinary Printmaking Conference
to be held at Monash University from 27-30 September 2011.
