Moving from print as a means of visual communication to the imprint of human values, Print Shift explores the related themes of subjectivity, community, food sovereignty, and economic exchange.

Shown as part of Print Festival Scotland 2013, Print Shift shares work by Shazia Ahmed, Chris Biddlecombe, DUO (Dundee Urban Orchard), Dean Kenning, and Chad McCail. The exhibition includes prints, sculpture, video, and a series of participatory events.
