The Sister City Prints project has taken a novel approach to art making and turned it into a show brimming with inspiring stories and exciting artworks, all with a printmaking flavour.
In the spirit of true global cooperation, Adelaide artist and curator Andrea Przygonski has brought together 11 contemporary Australian printmakers with 11 international artists and asked them to create something together.
Artists from Adelaide, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth were teamed with artists from Chicago, New York, Ireland, France, Estonia, Canada and New Zealand. The catch – most had never met each other before.
Surpassing the boundaries of distance, age and vastly different degrees of commercial success these artists connected with each other to build relationships and create work that expresses their individual interests and concerns.
