THE RISO MUSEUM ON DISPLAY AT BRAINFREEZE

Asheville based printers, Woolly Press, bring their exhibit on the history of Risograph printing to Nashville for a one day only event March 4 2017

Nashville, TN - On Saturday March 4th Brainfreeze will host The Riso Museum, a special collection of Risograph prints and publications curated by Asheville-based print shop Woolly Press. The exhibit will be on display for one day only from 10am to 9pm. Mica Mead and Colin Sutherland from Woolly Press will host an interactive presentation on Risograph printing from 5-6pm which will be followed by a reception with free beer for anyone over the age of 21 with a valid ID. The reception, exhibit, and presentation are all free and open to the public. Brainfreeze will be open till 9pm on the day of the event.

The Riso Museum showcases the Risograph (Riso) printing process and celebrates  Riso culture and its users. A stencil-based digital press, the risograph was employed in the copy rooms of the late 90’s corporate environment. Churches, law firms, and other small to medium organizations used the Riso as a method to produce large inexpensive runs of one to two color editions. The Risograph slowly disappeared from this landscape due to the influx of laser printers and other modern techniques, but has relocated to design studios, art departments, and DIY-house basements.

On view will be Risograph artifacts, objects from the printing process, as well as works from a variety of Risograph presses from around the world. Emphasis is placed on the Riso as an object and pieces that exhibit its idiosyncrasies. Selected works include Riso print guides, color charts, artistic prints, and publications. The Riso Museum is curated by Mica Mead and Colin Sutherland of Woolly Press, an Asheville-based Risograph design and print shop.
