The field of print faces challenges from being banned from Art Fairs, to academic print departments abandoning traditional shops for digital printers. The New York Times recent article, Even in the Digital Age, a Strong Case for Printmaking by Martha Schwendener talks about these issues and discusses the exhibition Artistic Collaborations: 50 Years of Universal Limited Art Editions is at the Museum of Modern Art, through May 21.

Schwendener touches on several hot topics for the field of print including the move by many academic institutions to move away from traditional print techniques to digital technologies and the collaborative nature of the print shop. “Artistic Collaborations” marks the half-century milestone for the workshop but Schwendener questions the lack of emerging artists shown in the exhibition.
