A Process of Emphasis: Prints of Robert Motherwell, Works on Paper, 1971-1988
An occasion to experience and think through the procedures of printmaking-- combining the techniques of collage, lithography and etching, to name a few-- as it increasingly captured Motherwell's imagination in his mid-late career.
The exhibition is co-curated by Timothy McDowell, professor of art, and Sookyoung Lee, postdoctoral fellow in the Department of English.
"This exhibition is an occasion to experience and think through the procedures of printmaking -- combining the techniques of collage, lithography, and etching, to name a few -- as it increasingly captured Motherwell’s imagination in his mid-late career,” said Lee of the exhibition. “Our distinguished panelists will speak to a range of issues, from Motherwell's aesthetics and philosophy to the nature of artistic labor and collaboration, from technical innovation to the legacies of modernism and abstract expressionism.”
Made possible by the Dedalus Foundation, the Art Department and the Office of the Dean of the Faculty, the exhibition is free and open to the public.
Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, 1 to 4 p.m., when classes are in session. The exhibition will be closed from Nov. 23 to 27 for the College’s Thanksgiving break.
