An exhibition of prints curated by ppppress, a student and alumni-run publishing project within ACT. ppppress was founded by ACT Class of 2021 Chucho Ocampo Aguilar, Emma Yimeng Zhu, Aarti Sunder, and Po-Hao Chi.
In an effort to bring printed-media back into the ever-growing presence of the virtual and the screen, ppppress presents a collection of prints created using a risograph, perfect binding machine, guillotine, silkscreen, press, and a digital duplicator (a mimeograph married to a xerox machine with a scanning bed on top).
Dancing between the digital and the analog, high tech and craft, and silkscreen and photocopy, the exhibition features content from the MIT Center for Advanced Visual Studies (CAVS) archive and work submitted by scholars, designers, artists, and scientists at the Institute.
In addition to the exhibition of prints in the Weisner Gallery, workshops in book making, printing, and storytelling using the CAVS archives are offered to the MIT community throughout January 2022.
Exhibition on display December 6, 2021 – January 21, 2022 in the Wiesner Student Art Gallery
Gallery is open 9:00am – 9:00pm daily
The PPPPRESS exhibition is supported by the MIT Architecture Department; Art, Culture, and Technology Program (ACT); CAVS Special Archive, Council of the Arts at MIT (CAMIT), and the MIT Transmedia Storytelling Initiative (TSI).
