PRINT UnLtd

Challenging and questioning perceived constricts and rules around printmaking, four artists have been commissioned to create new work for this pop-up exhibition.

Lubna Ali challenges the notion of the value of a print, using geometric patterns inspired by her Islamic heritage; Claudia Alonso explores sculptural forms as print; Joey Collins gathers source material from discarded ephemera and allows chance to play an integral part to the way he approaches his practice; and Gwilym Hughes abstracts anonymous faces found in Salford Museum’s stores.
