Marks and Motifs is a Print Council of Australia and Queensland University of Technology exhibition assisted by the Australian Government Program Visions of Australia.

The Print Council of Australia is a subscription funded not-for-profit visual arts organisation, devoted to encouraging the appreciation of contemporary Australian print media. Founded in Melbourne in 1966, each year since 1967 the PCA has commissioned artists to produce an edition of prints.

The tour of this exhibition was assisted by Visions of Australia, a Commonwealth Government Program providing funding support to tour exhibitions of cultural material across Australia. Visions of Australia aims to provide all Australians, wherever they live, with better access to the nation's cultural heritage; historic, scientific and visual arts material; and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture.
