Alea Contemporary Art and CavourArt Association present a wide-ranging project that brings together in a single event, 60 years of experimentation and research on the technical variables of realization and printing of engraved matrices. Starting from the traditional engraving techniques (xylography, etching, aquatint, ceramolle, drypoint, etc.) up to the most modern (monotype, photoengraving, combustion, collographies, also on plastic and re-use materials). On display some of the historic collaborators of the Atelier 17 founded by S.W. Hayter in Paris in the 1930s, and Alea's engraving artists, in a long and in-depth journey between tradition and experimentation. The exhibition, sponsored by the Municipality of Terni, will be visible until June 23, 2019.
