International Print Exchange of South Korea

The International Print Exchange of South Korea (IPESK)
 is going to be the first print exchange based in South Korea
with hopes of gathering an international collection of printmakers together
to share, network and exhibit work.

The theme for the 2011 exchange will be "Divided"
(As with most themed exhibitions and exchanges, the theme is not strictly enforced,
but is encouraged for the continuity and sophistication of the collection as a whole)

Artists are to send an edition of 15 identical prints,
using traditional (non-digital/photographic) printmaking techniques.
Each artist will get 13 random mixed prints in return.
Two prints from each edition will be held by IPESK
to be exhibited in at least one gallery in Seoul, South Korea in the spring of 2011.
An online gallery will show the list of participating artists and images of all the work.

Please contact IPESK via email to confirm participation in the exchange
and to be added to the website.

Due by no later than Friday 15 April 2011
Paper size: 7x7" (17.78cmx17.78cm)
 A US$ 30 participation fee is required to enter the exchange.
This will cover return shipping, curation of exhibits and opening reception expenses.
