Tacit Contemporary Art's annual print exhibition, Editions, launches the year at the gallery and features 47 Victorian printmakers with more than 150 works.

Curated by Keith Lawrence and now in its fifth year, the exhibition is one of the biggest of its kind in Melbourne and is an important part of the printmaking calendar.

With work selected from a state-wide open submission, Editions looks to showcase the excellence and diversity of Victorian printmaking. Unlike many survey exhibitions, Editions presents a number of works by each artist, providing the opportunity to gain a greater insight into individual art practices. But it is also there to challenge concepts of printmaking and present innovation in the art form.

2014 Silk Cut winner Clare Humphries explores the image and the tangible surface on which it materialises by addressing both the optical and material potentials of the picture plane. The Flanagan Prize - Emerging Artist Award winner Ying Huang continues to satirise popular culture and political history through her (mostly) large-scale silk screens on sheet metal. T J Bateson and Louise Blyton both explore an abstract minimalism aesthetic, Blyton through her small silkscreens on linen, Bateson in his large-scale linocuts.

Editions 2017 features:

Elizabeth Banfield, T J Bateson, Louise Blyton, Peter Brown, Craig Daniels, Kevin Foley, Peter Garnick, Janet Goldman, Jackie Gorring, Carolyn Hawkins, Jodi Heffernan, Ying Huang, Kate Hudson, Clare Humphries, Hyun Ju Kim, Kyoko Imazu, Lana de Jager, Shane Jones, Sheridan Jones, Myra Kaufman, Marita Kelly, Michele Kershaw, Deborah Klein, Damon Kowarsky, Marion Manifold, Jane Marriott, Marie Mason, Malini Maunsell, Paula McLoughlin, Karen Neal, Marte Newcombe, Sharron Okines, Helen Oliver-Skuse, Diana Orinda Burns, James Pasakos, Catherine Pilgrim, Stephanie Jane Rampton, Libby Schreiber, Gwen Scott, Lisa Sewards, Beata Slifierz, Jennifer Smyth, Jan Stickland, Anne-Maree Taylor, Steven Tester, Yvonne Torrico & Joel Wolter
