IMPACT 7 - Intersections & Counterpoints

27 September 2011
30 September 2011
Caulfield, Australia
Organised by Monash University, the IMPACT conference is a biennial international multi-disciplinary printmaking conference, originating from the Centre for Fine Print, University of the West of England, Bristol, UK. Previously it has been held in Finland, Germany and Poland, Estonia, South Africa, UK, and next will be Australia.

IMPACT 7 will focus on the multiple identity of the print, exploring the cross-disciplinary nature of printmedia internationally and in the context of the Asia-Pacific region. The conference addresses practitioners, writers, critics, artists, theorists, and others working in the broad fields of print-related research. It aims to provide a platform in which practitioners and researchers can engage in a mutually productive exchange. Media identified by the conference will include but not be limited to: printmaking, photography, graphic design, drawing, the artist’s book, text, animation, film and digital media, jewellery and metalsmith, glass, ceramic and textile

IMPACT 7 will reflect on the activities of an international community of artists, writers and designers. The conference will bring indigenous, migrant, and regional voices to the fore, with a focus on cultural diversity, creative collaboration, the artists’ book, and communication in digital networks.

Conference themes

IMPACT 7: Intersections & Counterpoints will focus on the multiple identity of the print, exploring the cross-disciplinary nature of printmedia internationally and in the context of the Asia-Pacific region. Printmedia will be explored as a heterogeneous, diverse and all pervading aspect of contemporary culture. Often located at the intersections of disciplines and media, it is also a powerful political vehicle, generating discourse and debate by virtue of its wide dissemination and ability to offer counterpoints to the norm.

The four-day event, to be held on the Monash University campus (Caulfield), will comprise the presentation of:
  • Papers and Themed Panels
  • Exhibitions
  • Academic Poster Presentations
  • Open Portfolios
