GRANDE Print Art Fair
The GRANDE Print Art Fair will return in the spring of 2019 as part of the Montreal Printed Arts Festival! The 2017 edition gathered more than 60 artists and organizations selling posters and printed art. The public got to meet and mingle with the artists who showcased the incredible vitality of this artistic community in Montreal. Silkscreen prints, letterpress, engravings, every form and every new trend in printed art was on display!
Organized by the team behind Expozine, the Grande fair was the perfect time to discover original artwork, the opportunity to meet the artists, organizations and collectives who make the print art world thrive in Montreal.
In 2017, GRANDE was presented in collaboration with the exhibitions and activities of the Chromatic festival. Innovative art installations, virtual reality and digital art, and various printing, zine-making and 3d printer workshops took place in the same large hangar next to the Grande Print Art Fair.
