Additional Information

Like teachers, visual artists are sometimes overwhelmed with an abundance of paperwork. Los Angeles artist Kim Abeles made the print in response to this issue. She took a year’s worth of her paperwork and arranged it in a stack, which she is seen flung over.

Abeles, who has been a visiting artist at UND, produced this print in the Department of Art & Design’s printmaking facility with the assistance of students. By working alongside professional artists, UND students are provided with unique learning opportunities. The students’ collaborations with visiting artists have been enhanced through Sundog Multiples—a printmaking venture created by Art & Design Professor Kim Fink, in conjunction with UND Art Collections, and generously funded by the Myers Foundations.
