Spudnik Press Cooperative is excited to host its first juried exhibition for MAPC members. Through hosting this exhibition, we strive to introduce Chicago printers, students, and artists utilizing Spudnik Press to national artists creating exceptional work in the field of printmedia.


A contribution furnishes something towards a result. “Contributory” is a juried show dissecting the parts that create the whole, the chain of events that leads to a result, good works that build communities, and the symbiotic nature of a contribution. “Contributory” reflects on what and how people, the natural world, and technology proffer with intention and purposefulness, or despite themselves.
