An Experiment in Art and Education
Just a few days ago we received a letter from Christophe Cherix, Curator of Prints and Illustrated Books, at the Museum of Modern Art. He let us know that a Graphicstudio print has been included in the New to the Print Collection: Matisse to Bourgeois installation which is on view through January 7, 2013.
The print included is Allover (Genesis, Travis Tritt, and Others), 2008, a large scale unique cyanotype by Christian Marclay. You’ll have to go to MoMA’s Paul J. Sachs Prints and Illustrated Books Galleries on second floor to see the print. But you can see more Christian Marclay editions created at Graphicstudio here.
From the MoMA New to the Print Collection: Matisse to Bourgeois exhibition page
This exhibition, which showcases some 80 prints and artists’ books the Museum has acquired over the past two years, reveals how an art collection is always a work in progress. On view for the first time at MoMA, these seminal works in the history of printmaking span more than a century, from 1888 to 2011—with some contextualized by related works already in the collection. Pablo Picasso’s 1937 print The Weeping Woman, acquired in 2011—which filled one of the last major gaps in MoMA’s holdings of works by the artist—is shown alongside the third state of the same image, which joined the collection in 1999…. Other highlights include Jasper Johns’s celebrated screenprint Flags I (1973), two vertical flags printed with 31 screens, which adds a key example of Johns’ early screenprinting to the collection. The exhibition also addresses more experimental processes that have often led to rare or one-of-a-kind works, from James Ensor’s hand-colored Deadly Sins (1888–1904) and a group of Henri Matisse’s monotypes (1914–15), to a recent monumental cyanotype by Christian Marclay.
