The Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) Tuanku Fauziah Museum and Gallery (MGTF) present the ‘Go Block Vol 5: Contemporary Expanded Printmaking Residency Project’ featuring the works from Juhari Said, Shahrul Jamili, Faizal Suhif, Samsudin Wahab, Awang Damit Ahmad, Jailani Abu Hassan, Stephen Menon, Hafiz Shahimi, Jerome Manjat, Rizo Leong, Agnes Lau, Fadhli Ariffin and Fadli Mokhtar. Senior and young printmakers venture into new areas and realms of printmaking in this new series of works. Besides showing the results of the GO BLOCK Printmaking Residency Project, this exhibition aims to reintroduce innovative ways of printmaking art to the audience.
The term ‘GO BLOCK’ can be described as a testament to the innovation of alternative printmaking that urges its practitioners to not only resort to the traditional method of doing prints. The phrase can also be seen as a cheer to celebrate alternative printmaking. GO BLOCK is a collective movement of several local printmakers who strive to push further the development of its discipline to another level. GO BLOCK is more than just a movement – it is an idea that is fluid in terms of its movement and dynamism of its practice.
