Pollock Gallery presents "Riso Bar" opening reception
The risograph is a printing technology defined by its relative simplicity and possibilities for experimentation. Invented in Japan in the 1940s, the technology was imagined as a cost-effective and environmentally friendly alternative to photocopy machines. In subsequent decades, riso has become a definitive creative tool for a global network of users including artists, designers, publishers and universities. "Riso Bar" is a collaborative exhibition that engages with the vast riso network, exploring the risograph’s potential as a tool for learning and experimentation.
Over the course of the exhibition, a risograph machine will be available for public use while the Pollock Gallery is open. Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through December 15.
