Off-Register opening


Foundation Projects presents Off-Register, a traveling group exhibition of experimental printmaking.The Off-Register exhibition will showcase prints by a collection of international artists and graphic designers associated through the professional practice of commercial print design, but that do not consider themselves printmakers.

The exhibition explores the relationship these artists and graphic designers have to printing and how commercial processes may inform more traditional methods of fine art print making.

Chicago is the first stop on the year long exhibition tour that opens at Chicago’s new AV-aerie exhibition space, located in the former Open End gallery which previously hosted such exhibitions as Up Our Sleeves and Tragic Beauty.
