THE PRINT CENTER'S INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITIONS

In honor of the 30th Anniversary of the International Centre of Graphic Arts, The Print Center was invited to mount an exhibition about our organization. The exhibition pairs work by three contemporary artists closely associated with us: Amze Emmons, Shelley Thorstensen and Andrew Jeffrey Wright, with artists that have an important connection to them and to The Print Center's history: Art Spiegelman, Stanley William Hayter and Edna Andrade

We are honored by this invitation and were delighted to have our Jensen Bryan Curator, John Caperton, visit Ljubljana for the opening reception.
