Introducing... The News Corner


Summer is over and a busy working year is ahead of us! Ars Graphica’s satellites and members are full of energy, plans and ideas to share. But nowadays information flows so fast that at times it might be difficult to keep track of social media posts and newsletters.

With The News Corner we aim at providing readers with a useful reminder of what’s been said and done in the graphic arts, and give a hint on what will come next. The News Corner is not about Ars Graphica's events (you will still find them in the newsletter!), instead it will present facts and activities recommended by Ars Graphica's members, as well as news circulating on social networks and online.

The News Corner will be posted on Ars Graphica's blog on Thursdays, every two weeks, and will be shared via social media as well. Ready? Here we go!

Academia never rests!

This past summer has proved to be very dense with academic activities:

  • In Vienna, the second edition of the Studienkurs zur Theorie und Praxis der Zeichnung took place during the first week of August, organized by Universitat Wien together with the Albertina.

  • Florence and Arezzo were the headquarters of the Summer School Master&Pupil: Art and Music in Italian print collections, XVI-XVIII centuries (July).

  • In Dresden, Beyond reproductive printmaking. Prints and the canon of European painting ca. 1500-1810 took place at the Kupferstichkabinett (18-19th September).

  • In London, new light was shed on the values and uses of print matrices during the conference Blocks Plates Stones (Courtauld Institute, 21st September).

To see, to visit…

At the Albertina in Vienna two one-man shows are on display this September: Bruegel (until 3rd December) and Raphael (opening tomorrow, until 7th January 2018). With around 130 drawings and 17 paintings, Raphael’s will be “the first exhibition to present works solely by Raphael in Austria”.

The British Museum is bringing Anthony Griffiths’ latest book The print before photography alive: the exhibition
