Under Pressure: Redefining the Multiple is the first in a new series of collaborations between Rochester Contemporary Art Center and The Print Club of Rochester. Including national and regional artists, this exhibition reflects the ongoing efforts of the Print Club of Rochester to recognize a paradigm shift in how prints are considered and the expansion of the definition of print media.

Rochester Contemporary Art Center (RoCo) is a venue for the exchange of ideas and a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) that was founded in 1977. As a center for thoughtful contemporary art, RoCo provides unique encounters for audiences and extraordinary opportunities for artists.
