For our spring Artist Talk series we are excited to be joined by Tara Cooper who will be giving a talk originally presented in Portland at the Southern Graphics Print Council Conference. Cooper's work combines outcomes of print, found objects, sculpture, text and video with installation. Her presentation explores the process of handmade printing where glitches, malfunctions, and imperfections challenge the slick perfection of print's industrial counterpart.
Cooper is an Associate Professor of Fine Arts at the University of Waterloo, Department of Fine Arts. She is also the co-editor of Printopolis - a recent publication that examines contemporary print culture.
