Trent Walter


Trent Walter is an artist, printer and publisher interested in the intersection of contemporary art and printed matter. In his artwork, Walter combines multiple readymade sources (textual, pictorial and/or sculptural) to explore narrative, history and intersecting time. His workshops reanimate archives through community based screenprinting workshops. Walter was joint recipient, with Brook Andrew, of the 2013–14 Georges Mora Foundation Fellowship, for the project Dual/Duel.

Through his studio, Negative Press, Walter commissions artists to create projects made through the lens of expanded print practices. Negative Press commissions three editions annually and also works on print projects commissioned by artists and cultural institutions. Recent projects include artists' books by Elizabeth Newman and Rose Nolan, Anna Ephraim’s series of screenprints Lake Eyre 2015 and Stuart Ringholt's Untitled 2014, which was pasted up on the streets of Melbourne during February 2014 and exhibited at Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane, as part of Ringholt’s survey exhibition Kraft; as well as two major projects made with Emily Floyd, Ripple 2013–14 and Solve Your Personal Problems Socially 2014.
