Upcoming Exhibition: Etching

The Renaissance of Etching
22 October–19 January, 2020
The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York

This exhibition will trace the first 60 years of the etched print (circa 1490 to circa 1560), from its emergence in the workshop of the German printmaker and armor decorator Daniel Hopfer to the years when a range of artists from Germany, Flanders, Italy and France began experimenting with etching. Approximately 125 etchings, produced by both renowned and lesser-known artists, will be displayed alongside a number of drawings, printing plates, illustrated books and armor.

Upcoming Exhibition: Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol: From A to B and Back Again
20 October–26 January, 2020
Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago

This major retrospective—the first to be organized by a US institution in 30 years—builds on the wealth of new research, scholarship and perspectives that have emerged since Andy Warhol’s early death at age 58 in 1987. More than 400 works offer a new view of the beloved and iconic American Pop artist, not only illuminating the breadth, depth and interconnectedness of Warhol’s production across the entirety of his career but also highlighting the ways that he anticipated the issues, effects and pace of our current digital age.

Ongoing Exhibition: Landfall Press

Landfall Press: Five Decades of Printmaking
Through 9 February 2020

This exhibition celebrates the history and innovation behind one of America’s most renowned printers/publishers on the occasion of its 50th anniversary year. Founded in 1970 by Jack Lemon in Chicago, Landfall Press has cultivated a uniquely collaborative environment and produced work for many artists at different points in their career. The press has operated out of Santa Fe, New Mexico, since 2004. The exhibition features approximately 100 editioned prints and printmaking materials from the Museum’s Landfall Press Archive, established in 1992, and reveals the various and often complex processes that go into printmaking at Landfall.
