ECAL 2015

in BACHELOR FINE ARTS


As part of its mission to showcase contemporary creativity, the Cabinet cantonal des estampes presents its recently acquired holdings of editions by the ECAL/University of Art and Design Lausanne. ECAL’s publishing activities begin in 1995. Their aim is to involve students in practical projects and preserve a record of the artists who teach or are active at the institution. 

The initial phase, lasting until 1999, is concerned mainly with multiples; from 2007 a new project shifts the focus to lithography and screen printing. The corpus of some 70 prints produced since that time bears witness to the diversity of contemporary artistic approaches. John M Armleder, Pierre Charpin, Constance Guisset, Fabrice Gygi, Alex Hanimann, David Hominal, Helen Marten, Karim Noureldin, Mai-Thu Perret and Olivier Saudan reveal their preoccupation with the art of the print and the graphic resources available within the multiplied image.
