After ten years posting High Up in the Trees, it is time for something new. Welcome to MARGINALIA. A new space, in the margins of Gracia & Louise.

Play catch up on Chunky Move's LUCID, Sydney Dance Company's CounterMove, and a parliament of Tawny owls for Contemporary Paper at Port Jackson Press Gallery.

Happy reading.


MARGINALIA, as the name suggests, is a brand new space for those things 'in the margins' of this very site. A collaged extension, in the wings, if you will, with more room for expansion. Having outgrown High Up in the Trees (2006–2016), we invite you to come and explore this new tree house.

(For now, High Up in the Trees will remain an accessible archive.)

Contemporary Paper: Celebrating a Year of Print
Wednesday 1st June — Friday 29th July, 2016
Port Jackson Press Gallery
84 Smith Street, Collingwood


Port Jackson Press in association with the PCA's Year of Print 2016 are proud to present ‘Contemporary Paper’, an exhibition of new works by our talented stable of artists. The centrepiece of our involvement with PCA’s Year of Print, Contemporary Paper curates new works created especially for the exhibition. This is a rare opportunity to see a vast majority of the artists we represent at a glance and their current practices. Our stable boasts a diverse range of techniques and subject matter that is unified by a high level of expertise and contemporary relevance within the printmaking industry and the art market at large.

As a keystone event of the Year of Print 2016, we believe Contemporary Paper represents all that printmaking has to celebrate. Curated in a single space, the wealth of works assembled speaks to the history of printmaking from its traditional roots, to contemporary iterations and to its endless possibilities. For collectors, this is invaluable insight to future acquisitions in terms of showcasing available works and how they fit within the broader landscape of contemporary printmaking.
