Edinburgh Printmakers and ACTINIC Festival are working in partnership to present an exhibition of photographic printmaking by Scottish based artists, that celebrates the techniques of ‘Actinism’ in the context of contemporary visual arts practice.

Each of the works on display will demonstrate the techniques of ‘Actinism’ which is an intrinsic property in radiation that produces photochemical activity including photoetching, silver gelatin, cyanotype and screen printing.

There will be an afternoon lecture on the 8th of February and Q&A with ACTINIC Festival Director and Co-curator. Tickets & info here.
