Students In Dissent

A collaborative screen printing project with Stuart Russell, Emily Floyd and Warren Taylor aimed to re-produce a series of Monash student political posters from the 1970's. The original posters were archived by Ken Mansell and the overall series of 9 posters were exhibited as a part of the MELBOURNE NOW exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria. Students were involved in all stages of the project from preparing the file for print, to mixing ink and pulling the screens. By experimenting with various ink application techniques such as splashing and mixing the colours on the screen, it allowed us to develop a clear direction for the rest of the printing process.
