Curated by Sarah Lowndes, New Edition was a group exhibition displaying newly-commissioned printed works by Museums Press, Poster Club and Emer Tumilty. The exhibition was presented as the 50th anniversary exhibition of Edinburgh Printmakers, during Edinburgh Art Festival 2017. The title of the exhibition underlined the generational group of the exhibiting artists, who were all born between the late 1960s and the early 1980s, and who represented the current wave of Scotland-based artists working with print. New Edition showcased the imaginative and enabling possibilities inherent in the medium of print through new works by young printmakers active in the Scottish contemporary art scene.
