Between the Lines is an exhibition of works by artists from East London Printmakers, a not-for-profit artist run studio based in Mile End. The works survey the breadth of contemporary printmaking, ranging from traditional techniques to experimental processes, and showcase how differently the artists have used print language to explore imagery, surface and mark-making in their work.
ELP provides professional and affordable printmaking facilities for artists, and works together as a collective to exhibit works, teach workshops, host artist talks and offer open access printmaking sessions for the wider artistic community. They also provide a platform for print research, and support emerging and graduate artists through residency programmes and printmaking awards. Now celebrating their 20th anniversary, they also host an annual Festival of Print, and our annual box set of prints is held in the collection at the Victoria and Albert Museum.
