Today’s print culture integrates both traditional and contemporary tools and techniques for artists to explore their ideas through print media. Our students incorporate the spatial understandings of reproduction, as well as the multiple and digital media in expanded print practices. We need artist-researchers to investigate the meaningful relationships that exist between the technologies of reproduction, individual expression and society through this contemporary lens.
The MFA in Studio Arts, Print Media concentration, provides you with a forum to articulate your artistic vision as an artist/printmaker. Our celebrated faculty members are deeply steeped in the expertise of traditional and expanded print practices and will supply you with regular feedback on your artwork in preparation for your concluding exhibition and defense.
You’ll benefit from some of the best facilities in Canada dedicated to lithography, intaglio, screen printing, relief, book arts and digital printing. Montreal’s rich print culture history will inform your work, with its concentration of galleries, collections and archives. The city is also home to significant print studios where many of our students do residencies, become members and serve on their boards of directors.
