The competition exhibition organized under the slogan of transgrafia is an open invitation addressed to Polish artists, and above all an encouragement to present non-standard works that exceed the framework of classical printmaking, expanding the rules of graphic play, boldly entering the exhibition space and harmoniously combining various means of expression, as well as classic and new media.
With this exhibition, we would like to draw attention to the extraordinary creative potential inherent in printmaking as a medium of art, to show the public the richness and diversity of graphic worlds and possible forms of communication through this extremely susceptible medium for experiments.
transgrafia is a combination of openness and professionally designed exhibition narration. The criterion for the evaluation of submitted works will be their uniqueness, artistic values, openness to dialogue with the present and implementation possibilities.
Thanks to transgrafia, we have the chance to recall the best traditions of artistic Krakow and leave a permanent mark on the consciousness of the recipients of culture.
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.
