On Repitition - Garage Rotterdam

“On Repetition” at the Garage in Rotterdam – July 29 – August 13

The exhibition will showcase screen print works of artists from the Mesh Print Club who explore the concept of repetition in their art. The exhibition will take place at Garage Rotterdam, a exhibition centre for contemporary art in an old Volkswagen garage.
Over 25 artists will participate and showcase new work based on their interpretation of the theme ‘On Repetition’. The exhibition will feature a diverse range of screen-printed pieces, from geometric patterns to abstract designs to typography-based works. Through the use of layering, color variation, and imagery, the artists invite the viewer to consider the ways in which repetition can create a sense of harmony, intensity, and movement. Don’t miss this opportunity to engage with contemporary printmaking techniques and discover the power of repetition.
