PRINT! is an International Printmaking Project. During September works by students and staff from the International Printmaking Union and students from MA Fine Art Central Saint Martins (CSM) came together in a workshop setting to create work for an exhibition alongside other contemporary artists at Gallery 425 in Brussels. The event highlighted a stage in the research network of the Printmaking Union who have plans for a further exhibition at Le Centre de la Gravure et de l’Image imprimee, in La Louviere in 2018, and the development of an application for a Creative Europe partnership project.
