We look forward to welcoming 145 artists, designers, printers and publishers from 16-18 November in Maastricht.
The world top Riso Printers, Publishers & Artists are coming to the Van Eyck for the third edition of the Riso biennial Magical Riso from 16–18 November 2018. A 3-day event comprising two conference days and a (final) day presenting an Art Book Fair, publisher talks, an exhibition, workshops and demonstrations.
Risograph printing – digital stencil printing – is loved by artists, graphic designers and photographers for the quality and vibrancy of the printed matter, the surprising colour effects and the unexpected results the machine puts out. Moreover, it provides the opportunity for self-publishing.
A specialist in Riso printing, the Charles Nypels Lab for Printing & Publishing of the Van Eyck, is organizing for the third time the Riso Biennial with the support of RISO Benelux.
Presenting a different set up and theme each time, the 2018 edition carries the subtitle Monumental Riso. Rather than focusing on the ‘traditional’ use of risograph in making editions, fanzines, flyers and small posters, this edition, the organizers want to highlight the monumental qualities that can be achieved by using the risograph technique.
Riso and the Monumental is also the theme for an all-year research In-Lab mentored by Van Eyck advisor and graphic designer Paul Bailey, exploring together with Van Eyck participants “The Art of Forgetting”. The results of this collaborative research project will be presented during the conference and on show at the exhibition.
Next to the conference and the In-Lab, a Monumental Riso Exhibition will open on the 17th of November with newly made works at the Charles Nypels Lab by 12 selected artists working in risograph, mimeograph and screen print.
