“In the year 2000, Al-Riwaq Gallery organized a joint exhibition in graphic/ print art by Abdul-Jabbar Al-Ghadhban and Abbas Yousif. In 2011, Al-Riwaq Gallery held a workshop in graphic/ print art/ collagraph technique, under the supervision of the late Iraqi artist Rafie Al-Nasseri, in which 13 artists participated. Since then, the gallery has been working in one way or another to support and publish graphic art/ printing. Moving to the new space/ the Bank House / this spacious venue gave Al Riwaq the opportunity to resume this activity in a larger and wider scope. The new graphic/ print studio was opened in 2022, through which artists found the platform, time and resources to hold technical workshops in silk screen printing, engraving on wood, lino and plastic. The space was open and accessible to all artists interested in this art genre. This exhibition, which I like to call “Project Print", is a continuation of that beginning and an affirmation that Al Riwaq believes in the importance of this genre of art, and is continuing to support it and its practice, as it does for other genres. Examples of these are architecture, photography, design, video art, fashion, etc. and thus providing a platform and support for the values of the creative arts and celebrating the culture of beauty in society, towards further development of the cultural and visual construction of human values.” - Abbas Yousif, Exhibition Moderator.
