Celebrating 50 years of printmaking innovation

Curated by Sarah Lowndes, and presented as the 50th anniversary exhibition of Edinburgh Printmakers, New Edition is a group exhibition displaying newly-commissioned printed works by Museums Press, Poster Club and Emer Tumilty, which will be presented as the 50th anniversary exhibition of Edinburgh Printmakers, during Edinburgh Art Festival 2017. The title of the exhibition underlines the generational group of all of the exhibiting artists, who were born between the late 1960s and the early 1980s, and represent the current wave of Scotland-based artists working with print. New Edition will showcase the imaginative and enabling possibilities inherent in the medium of print through new works and linked accessible events from some of the most exciting young printmakers active in the vibrant contemporary art scene of Scotland.
