The Rise of Riso

June 8 / 9:30 am - July 10 / 9:00 pm

This exhibition explores the riso printing process and its rise in popularity as a low-cost medium for self-publishers and illustrated publications. A risograph is a stencil duplicator, a mechanised imprint using a screen that allows ink to be passed through. Similar in speed, shape and interface to a photocopier, but with the tactile print of a lithograph or screen-print, it has become a popular medium for graphic prints, small-scale zines and books. Part of the ELCAF x Foyles season, it will focus on seven international riso printing studios and small publishers including Hato Press, UK; Inuit, Italy; Peow, Sweden and Howdy Printer, US that have produced comics, sequential illustration and other graphic narratives.


PRIVATE VIEW: Wednesday 7 JUNE (18.30 – 20.30)
