‘Underexposed’ at Studio 3 Gallery, University of Kent

An exhibition that aims to challenge artistic opinion about print is currently taking place in Canterbury.

Underexposed looks at the ways in which more than 40 prominent female artists have used the medium of print over the last two centuries and asks why they have chosen to work in that particular artistic medium.

The exhibition also examines the different types of prints – from traditional wood or metal engravings, etchings, lithographs and linocuts to screenprints, photogravure and digitally produced work – and the different subject matter chosen by the female artists represented, who include Barbara Hepworth, Beryl Cook, Bridget Riley, Elizabeth Frink and Kent’s very own Tracey Emin.

The curators, two mature art history students at the University of Kent, feel it is an opportunity to educate both the art-going public and other students on the importance of the print medium in western art history, and to celebrate the artistic achievements of female artists overall.
