Andrés Cisneros-Galindo began facilitating printmaking at NIAD Art Center in 1985, shortly after the organization was founded. Since then he has worked with countless artists to explore and reimagine the process of printmaking through collaboration.

This exhibition surveys decades of studio work and serves as an archive of the curator’s legacy at NIAD. The traditions of printmaking are reinvented by each artist’s practice and Cisneros-Galindo’s facilitation. Each piece records this practice of letting go and following the rules at the same time.

“It is the way that printmaking should be, and painting in general. You know art-making—it’s a continuous process of learning and relearning, and inventing. Inventing is the whole thing, you know.”

This exhibition was presented at NIAD Art Center in December 2022 with the title NIAD Ink: 35 Years of Prints, in celebration of Andrés Cisneros-Galindo’s legacy as an educator, mentor and printmaker. At Richmond Art Center, this exhibition will be presented next to the first major survey exhibition of Cisneros-Galindo’s work.
