Leslie Mutchler and Jason Urban present new work in Universal at Atelier Circulaire. The work was "developed at Artists Image Resource (AIR), Pittsburgh, (Pennslyvania). While in residence at AIR, the pair generated prints and recorded the act of printing, an inherently tactile experience, to be presented as a meta-experience alongside the physical. The creation of three nearly identical prints- a silkscreen, a lithograph, and a woodblock- started an inquiry into the nature of making and the nature of documenting making.”

The exhibition will be on display September 18 through October 17.
