An exhibition of recent work by some of the most renowned artists working in the print medium today. 'Afterlife' refers not only to the content of the images - touching on themes of mortality, preservation and regeneration - but to the way the print process has been used to transfigure and recycle elements of nature and art.
The featured artists have all created some of their best work in print, with imaginative use of a range of traditional and digital processes, stimulated by collaboration with British printers and publishers. All the exhibits have been acquired for the Fitzwilliam's collection through a variety of sources, including The Art Fund, the Friends of the Fitzwilliam and the Chadwyck-Healey Charitable Trust.
