João Silvério exhibition’s Curator, comments: «The exhibition 1/3 MeelPress brings together a group of contemporary artists from different generations whose work was developed in collaboration with MeelPress print studio, founded in Lisbon in 2013 by the artist and printmaker Hugo Amorim. The singularity of the exhibition project is anchored in the diversity of artistic projects which, emerging within a great historical tradition, reveals a strong experimental component present in the art works on show. This print studio has assumed a dual role in the context of Portuguese contemporary art, as both a space for production of printed work and an artist’s studio where they can create and develop new art work. 1/3 MeelPress is the collective expression represented by printmaking in contemporary art production.
