Mark Graver

Mark Graver is an award winning artist/printmaker now based in New Zealand.

He is author of Non-Toxic Printmaking (2011, London, A&C Black), has sat on printmaking selection panels in China, Bulgaria and NZ and curated international print projects in the UK and Australia.  His work is held in major international museum collections such as the V&A, London and in China, Mexico, USA, Thailand, Taiwan, Malaysia and Australia.

Mark’s practice involves working with printmaking, digital video and sound with interest concentrated at the point where these approaches meet and cross - the editonable act/event/encounter of pulling a print or screening a film, the re-presenting of this act/event/encounter and its relationship with memory, place and time.

Mark is a current International Artist In Residence at the Tasmanian College of the Arts. As part of his residency Mark is working towards an exhibition and symposium presentation as part of the Orogeny project.

In his Art Forum presentation Mark will give a background to his practice, current interests and activity he will undertake as part of his Artist in Residency program.
