This intensive workshop will cover all the essential techniques of fine art screenprinting. We will learn various methods of creating multi-color compositions along with multiple registration techniques for printing on both paper and fabric. In addition to process proficiency, we will consider the many conceptual and political possibilities behind working in a medium that can create multiples. We’ll emphasize the versatility of this medium by looking at contemporary artists and projects that utilize the screenprinting process in painting, installation, sculpture, and participatory and interactive works. The course will culminate in a printed project that comes off the page: from paper sculptures, to book forms, printed interventions and more.
Imin Yeh is an interdisciplinary and project-based artist working in sculpture, installation, and participatory events. Her projects use Print Media as a technical tool for realizing the ambition of large-scale work and Print as a conceptual strategy for exploring free, exchange, and craft based economies. The projects utilize repetitive handcraft and mimicry as a strategy for examining the issues around the unseen labor and production that lies behind our many unconsidered everyday objects. Recent exhibitions include the San Jose Museum of Art, Asian Art Museum (San Francisco), and at the Contemporary Jewish Museum (San Francisco). Yeh is the recipient of a Eureka Fellowship from the Fleishhacker Foundation and an Individual Artist Grant from the San Francisco Arts Commission. Yeh has an MFA from California College for the Arts. Imin Yeh is an Assistant Professor at Carnegie Mellon University.
