Justified is an exhibition by four artists working under the auspices of the Printmaking Fellowship scheme at the University of Northampton.
Artists working in print today explore it not only for its unique aesthetic but also for its capacity to reproduce, circulate, appropriate, collaborate; thus recognising its agency in effecting social change. Print therefore seems an appropriate medium when we speak about justification.
Here, printmaking as a medium has helped to channel themes of transformation, identity, cultural memory and perception. In doing so, the artists have challenged conventions of print, extending its language beyond the confines of the press.
