The exhibition presenting the work of the American printmaker Deborah Cornell – the double winner of the previous edition of the International Print Triennial in Krakow (Grand Prix and Grand Prix d'honneur) is an excellent link between the Main Exhibition and transgrafia. For years, Cornell has been masterfully using classical techniques, and in recent decades has bravely transcended the boundaries of a two-dimensional, static image using digital media, dynamically transforming the image, complementing it with sound and spatializing its work that takes on the graphic features of absolute space. Deborah Cornell invites the viewer to immerse in the extraordinary world of created and constantly transforming images, and the accompanying sound additionally reinforces the sense of absorption of the viewer through the stream of images.
International Print Triennial Society in Krakow (Stowarzyszenie Międzynarodowe Triennale Grafiki w Krakowie, SMTG) was established in the year 1992 to continue the organisation of International Print Biennial in Krakow, an event whose history reaches back to the year 1966. The SMTG changed the frequency of the event, transforming at the same time its name to International Print Triennial (SMTG) in Krakow.
At the same time SMTG expanded the organisational formula of the event, developing in other Polish cities a range of regular events that are organised as part of the MTG - Krakow programme. The International Print Triennial (pl. Międzynarodowe Triennale Grafiki, MTG) in 2018 is held according to a new formula. It will still be an open competition, as it is a significant value created in the past decades, but, at the same time, the goal of the new edition of the Triennial is to present the complex nature of the printmaking process in the fullest possible manner to the wide range of viewers.
