FAC’s annual Print Award Forum is an opportunity to discuss contemporary printmaking issues with artists and experts from across Australia. In 2017, the forum investigates the future of print design, self-publishing and small-press processes with particular reference to works in this year’s Print Award exhibition.


Dr Ric Spencer (WA) – Curator, FAC – will give a tour of this year’s FAC Print Award exhibition.

Stuart Geddes (VIC) – Industry Fellow, Lecturer, School of Media and Communication, RMIT – will discuss the relationship between small-press and self-publishing strategies.

André Lipscombe (WA) – Judge, 2017 FAC Print Award – will give a brief tour of the exhibition from the judges perspective.

The winner of the 2017 Print Award will discuss their work and how it forms part of their broader practice.
