Under Pressure 2017

September 1, 2017 - September 24, 2017

Under Pressure: Redefining the Multiple returns for the second year of this new series of collaborations between Rochester Contemporary Art Center and The Print Club of Rochester.

Including national, regional, and international artists, this exhibition reflects a paradigm shift in how prints are considered; and the expansion of the definition of print media. Under Pressure 2017 includes a wide range of work that transcend traditional approaches and move beyond two dimensions.
