This symposium is the latest in a V&A series focused on innovation in contemporary printmaking. It aims to explore the role of surface within fine art digital print from a variety of perspectives including those of practitioners, critics and curators. The role of surface will be addressed within an expanded concept of digital fine art printmaking, from the purely digital inkjet print through to 3D prints and monitor based output. The symposium draws on the V&A’s unique collection of contemporary prints and digital art, and is the conclusion of the AHRC funded project, The Personalised Surface within Fine Art Digital Printmaking conducted at the University of the Arts London. The symposium will be led by Professor Paul Coldwell and Dr Barbara Rauch, UAL.
