International Print Exchange 2009-11

5 – 31 May 2012

The IPE was founded by, and is dedicated to, David Michael Johnson who sent out the original call from Derby to printmakers worldwide on 28th February 2009. Within 24 hours he had received over 400 positive emails from printmakers in the UK and further afield and this prompted the beginning of the first International Print Exchange in 2009. Sadly, David was diagnosed with terminal cancer shortly after the first exchange was completed and passed away, surrounded by his family, on 4 June 2010. However, his family continue his legacy, and every year the exchange is dedicated to his memory. The vibrancy and diversity of the IPE submissions reflect the zest he had for life in general and his love for printmaking in particular.
