In Conversation with Artist and Printmaker Endi Poskovic
For a printmaker’s perspective on the complex and engaging works in the Multiple Impressions exhibition, join artist Endi Poskovic for an informal conversation in the galleries. Although he works in diverse print media, Poskovic has commented about woodblock printing that “the knowledge that block printing could be as ‘cutting edge’ as any new, technology-supported media was enormously stimulating” for his own work.
Born in Sarajevo and educated in Sarajevo and in the US, Poskovic’s graphic work invokes influences as disparate as early cinema, classic Japanese woodcut prints, devotional pictures, and Eastern European propaganda posters. His work is widely exhibited, including most recently in the 14th Taipei International Print Biennial, and the 2009 Krakow International Print Triennial, and is found in museum collections in the US, Egypt, Taiwan, Poland, Finland, and France. Poskovic is Associate Professor at the University of Michigan School of Art and Design, as well as at the University of Michigan Center for Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies.
Multiple Impressions was organized by the University of Michigan Museum of Art with the cooperation and support of the China Academy of Art, Hangzhou, China. It is made possible in part by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Henry Luce Foundation, the E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation, and the University of Michigan Center for Chinese Studies, Confucius Institute, and Office of the Senior Vice Provost for Academic Affairs.
