Exquisite History 3: The Visionary Workbook
The Printmakers Left is an international collective working on collaborative installations, portfolios and books. Ever-evolving, our group emanates from the University of Virginia printshop, and is composed of faculty, alumni, visiting artists and friends.
Exquisite History is modeled after the 1493 Nuremberg Chronicle, a history of the world from creation to present day and beyond. In this version, The Printmakers Left has retained the three-part structure: for Genesis they published The Land of Wandering in 2005; for its History to Present Day they published The New World in 2009; and for its Apocalypse of St. John we are currently working on The Visionary Workbook (I am a recent addition to the group and my work is included in this third volume).
Participating artists include: Adam Wolpa, Akemi Ohira Rollando, Anne Beck, Annu Vertanen, Barbara Campbell, Berenika Boberska, Charles Beneke, Christopher Thomas, Clay Witt, Dana Giacofci, David Bendernagel, Dean Dass, Elizabeth Stark, John Schulz, Joshua Dailey, Juan Garcia, Jyrki Markkanen, Kate Daughdrill, Lindsay McCulloch, Lydia Diemer, Lydia Moyer, Maggie Booth, Maggie Sullivan, Patrick Costello, Rachel Livedalen, Rachel Singel and Randall Stoltzfus.
