This article discusses the author’s transition from artist to curator and cultural producer of contemporary print exhibitions. By exploring the creative process of three exhibitions, including I AM that I AM (2015) at IMPACT 9 in Hangzhou (China), Out of the Matrix 3.0 (2018) at IMPACT 10 in Santander (Spain), and Out of the Matrix 2.0 (2019) at Hong Kong Open Printshop in Hong Kong (SAR, China), this paper uses personal reflections on the relationship between artistic practice, collaboration, and collective creation in cross-cultural print exhibition works. These research projects provide an opportunity to investigate specific elements of print productions from printmaking practice to collaborative curation.
