Akua Inks is proud to announce their first exhibition, "Pushing The Limits," an exhibition that will display works which transcend the traditional practices of printmaking. Our mission is to not only produce quality, safer materials for printmakers, but to facilitate a greater appreciation and understanding of contemporary printmaking. By expanding upon the context in which printmaking is typically viewed, "Pushing The Limits" will highlight the versatile contemporary print practices and works happening today such as mixed media prints, artists books, digital media, animation and installation.
Maddy Rosenberg is an independent international curator and artist. She is the founder and Executive Director/Curator of CENTRAL BOOKING, a two-gallery space in New York's Lower Eastside. She has curated numerous exhibitions including, "Text Out of Context" at the Hewitt Gallery of Art at Marymount Manhattan College and "Narrative Sequences" at The Center for Book Arts in New York. She received a National Endowment for the Arts Grant for her international multi-venue curatorial project, "New York/Paris DIALOGUE Paris/New York".
Susan Rostow is a New York City artist and the inventor of Akua Inks.
