Since the renaissance, prints have enabled artists to disseminate their work and perspectives throughout the world. A print, unlike other types of art, can exist in multiple places at the same time. Editions have played, and continue to aid an important role of documenting and testifying to the existence of events. This documentary ability puts a print into the realms of an archive.

The archive is an accumulation and preservation of records, documents and primary sources. Artists take on the role of cultural archivist - pulling from, referencing, preserving and collecting artifacts.

Prints holds power in numbers, their ability to be mass-produced and distributed links the medium to revolt, revolutions and political movements. From posters and manifestoes, to clothing and banners, if it can be multiply then it can be distributed and dissemination has begins.

Record Keepers is a group exhibition composed of “print” artist who strive to preserve current events and historical ones via their editions.
