EFA Project Space presents Beyond A Memorable
Fancy
, an exhibition about print, perception, and
artistic intervention, on view from October 30
through December 13, 2008.

Focusing on the transformative aspects of printmaking,
Beyond a Memorable Fancy explores the current trend
of artists experimenting with print techniques in order
to appropriate and manipulate information—be it from
text or image sources, cultural symbols, or nature.

The art in the exhibition spans a range of
unconventional formats, including experimental film,
laser stencil graffiti, vinyl signage, cast shadows, and
boat-making paraphernalia. Even the more common
print techniques present are used to achieve an
unexpected result.

This event is being held in conjunction with the exhibition Beyond a Memorable Fancy, on view October 30 - December 20, 2008.
