688 Sutter Gallery


Artist Reception: Thursday, October 5, 2017 | 5:30-7:30pm

PRINTED IN CUBA is an initiative by Margarit Lehmann (Switzerland) in cooperation with Aliosky Gracía (Cuba) and Lian Ng (USA). It is an experiment of artistic and sociopolitical dimensions: not Cuban art in America or Swiss art in Cuba, but joint work in a tri-national cooperation.

The project brings together 19 printmakers from Cuba, USA and Switzerland to collaborate on a collection of unique prints using lithography, collagraphy, etching, pressure and relief printing techniques. The artists created layers on the same print in response to one another, resulting result in finished pieces that do not represent a singular artist but a collective whole. The artists who participated in the project include: Alejandro Sainz (Cuba), Aliosky García (Cuba), Andreas Frick (Switzerland), Barry Ebner (USA), Carrie Ann Plank (USA), Franziska Schiratzki (Switzerland), Hanoi Pérez (Cuba), Janette Brossard (Cuba), Lian Ng (USA), Margarit Lehmann (Switzerland), Megan Adie (USA), Norberto Marrero (Cuba), Octavio Irving (Cuba), Patricia Schneider (Switzerland), Sadhyo Niederberger (Switzerland), Susanne Schär & Peter Spillmann (Switzerland), Yamilys Brito (Cuba), and a video project from Mimi von Moos (Switzerland).
