This innovative exchange of contemporary prints was first initiated in 2011–12 as Vie de Pacifique–Pacific Life by Dr Jenny Sanzaro-Nishimura while she was president of Impress printmakers Studio Brisbane. It was implemented to give printmakers in the Asia Pacific area an opportunity to share their work with an international audience and have a voice on issues that face the region.

The second Pacific Perimeter Print Exchange, Vie du Pacifique II, was curated and coordinated by Dr Jenny Sanzaro-Nishimura and Jennifer Stuerzl from Migaloo Press in 2016. The series features artists from USA, Japan, New Zealand, Vanuatu and Australia.

Both print series’ have been shown internationally, showcasing a variety of printmaking techniques including traditional, digital and variable edition monoprints, on A4 size archival paper.

Dr Jenny Sanzaro-Nishimura and Migaloo Press generously donated the Works from the 2012 and 2016 Pacific Perimeter Print Exchange: Vie De Pacifique–Pacific Life / Vie Du Pacifique II to the Gladstone Regional Art Gallery & Museum Print Collection in April 2017.
