It is with great pleasure that we announce the opening of ‘Cross-Currents’, the first of a two-part bilateral exhibition project, between students from Tokyo University of the Arts, and the Faculty of VCA and Music, University of Melbourne.

The work in this exhibition developed through a collaborative program of lectures and workshops, conducted simultaneously in both institutions, focussing on the unique attributes that printmaking offers to installation as a practice, and the outcomes that might be generated through an investigation of inter-contextual and interpersonal problem-solving.

The project began with the selection of 7 students from each institution, who were randomly and anonymously paired. A set of instructions was issued and became the catalyst for an exchange of objects, such as drawings, text and sound files. Dialogue followed in the form of exchanged printed image, three times crisscrossing geographic borders and reactively constructing each layer of the printmaking response. Finally, the anonymous players met via Skype, to share thoughts on the nature of pictorial space, printmaking process, installation concept and cultural identity.

‘Cross-Currents’, presents an installation, offering speculation on the intersection of printmaking exchange, culture, and interpretive processes.
