Aura: Repetition, Reproduction and the Mark of the Artist
Curated by artist Ben Rak, Aura features new work by ten Australian artists who use printmaking techniques in their work and who explore the supposed shortcomings of the printed media. By doing so, they amplify the marks of the artist and the perceived ‘aura’ of the works.
