End of Times 2: The Time is Now
2017 FEELS LIKE THE APOCALYPSE HAS COME.
Cultural icons are dying left and right, a reality TV star has won the US presidential election, and the Chicago Cubs won the world series. This MUST be the End of Times! With all the chaos around, people are depending on us for a light in the darkness, some sign of hope, a reminder of the good things in life and what is within our grasp.
41 LETTERPRESS PRINTERS REACT TO THE CURRENT WORLD CLIMATE.
End of Times is a project that began 12/21/2012 with the first print exchange dealing with the possibility of an apocalypse with the close of the Mayan calendar. This sequel combines 20 letterpress printers from before (2012) and 21 printers from now (2017) that will bring forth a new and exciting collection of prints relating to perseverance. Letterpress Printers from around the world created an edition of 80 (8 x 10 inch) prints that capture their personal styles and reactions to the current world climate.
EXHIBITIONS WILL TRAVEL AROUND THE WORLD.
Each printer created an edition of work that has been collected into multiple sets at Bruno Press, in St. Joseph, MN. Printers will receive a complete set, multiple sets will travel to exhibitions around the world and a select few will be available for purchase to continue the spirit of collaboration and lay the groundwork for the next exchange.
