Printmaking by ECAL
27 March to 31 May 2015

The publishing activities of ECAL, the university of art and design
in Lausanne, begin in 1995 at the instigation of Pierre Keller and
Lionel Bovier. The aim is to involve students in practical projects;
to provide work for the studios; and to preserve a record of the
artists who teach or are active there. The first phase, which focuses
on multiples, is followed in 2008 by a project centring on lithographs,
and in 2012, screen printing under the aegis of new director
Alexis Georgacopoulus. This exhibition in the Cabinet cantonal
des estampes marks the entry of works by John M Armldeder,
Pierre Charpin, Constance Guisset, Fabrice Gygi, Alex Hanimann,
David Hominal, Philipp King, Helen Marten, Karim Noureldin,
Mai-Thu Perret, and others into the prints collection of the Canton
of Vaud and also takes the opportunity for an examination of
contemporary printing practice.
