About The Event
Brutal Print explores the legacy of Britain’s brutalist architecture and New Town environments through the medium of print and collage. Screen-print, collage and the graphic image are explored as a communication tool that plays an important role in architectural design. At its most fundamental level, print visually communicates information with form, colour, and typography. It also, and perhaps more importantly, influences our interaction with and the identity of place and space. André Stitt & Sarah Hardacre explore these issues through the politics of social housing, cultural heritage, spatial orientation, and a personal and subjective experience of Britain’s New Town planning and modernist architectural legacies. The artists research considers a visionary and utopian embodiment of progressive civic, municipal, social and cultural identity, glamour, feminist critique and masculine liminality through processes of mediation and reproduction.
Prism Contemporary is based in the heart of Blackburn town centre. The gallery is dedicated to providing a contemporary academic space for artistic output.
