Crossing The Border: Portfolio Exchange and Exhibition

December 9, 2010 – January 30, 2011

University At Buffalo
Center for the Arts Atrium

Opening Reception
Thursday, December 9th, 5 – 7 PM

Please join us for an opening reception for “Crossing the Border,” a printmaking exchange between the University at Buffalo, New York and Concordia University, Montréal. The prints in this collaborative exchange project reflect a diverse group sixteen of artists living on both sides of the Canada-US border. For the portfolio, each artist explored the theme of borders in way that reflects his or her own experience. In keeping with this theme, the format of the prints is that of a ‘passport’ consisting of one or more printed pages bound or folded to the standard passport size. This project includes traditional print medium as well as photography, book-making, and digital printing. This project is made possible through the support of the University at Buffalo Canadian American Studies Program, the University at Buffalo Visual Studies Department,  the Government of Canada.
