Publisher Statement
Organized by Bill Hosterman (associate professor of Art and Design, Grand Valley State University), The Evolving System investigates the relationship between the dynamics of a working system that allows and accepts change as a means of evolving and adapting. It uses the common connections between the way that prints and cities are both established systems that by necessity and opportunity are in the process of allowing previous and new strategies to exist simultaneously. At times, this relationship is one of agreement, while at other times, it is one of conflict and challenge. As an artistic medium, printmaking has a long history of effective working methods. It has been transforming with the advent of new technologies and the definition of what constitutes a multiple. As opposed to shedding the previous ways of working and thinking, the community of printmakers is adapting to the change, at times embracing and at times questioning the current directions of the medium.
