It’s not the first time the National Gallery of Art (NGA) has accepted work from Graphicstudio into their collection, but it is the first time it’s happened since we started blogging. So, we thought we’d share this most recent selection of works that have been approved by the NGA Board of Trustees.
Selection of Graphicstudio Productions Entered on October 1, 2010 to the NGA:
- Guillermo Kuitca‘s six cyanotypes for The Neufert Suite (2002)
- Allan McCollum‘s 1200 digital inkjet prints for Each and Every One of You (2004)
- Christian Marclay‘s twenty-one photogravures for Sound Holes (2007)
- James Rosenquist‘s color lithograph, Hole in the Center of the Clock (2007)
- Alex Katz‘s color lithograph/woodcut, Sharon (2009)
Excerpt from the NGA Letter to Graphicstudio
We count on Graphicstudio to point us to many of the most inventive artists working today. Guillermo Kuitca’s Neufert Suite is outstanding, and we look forward to seeing his retrospective at the Hirshhorn later this month. We are especially grateful to Graphicstudio and Allan McCollum for devoting so much time and energy to making an additional set of Each and Every One of You for the National Gallery. The work is intriguing and the trustees responded to it enthusiastically, as they did to Christian Marclay’s Sound Holes, Alex Katz’s Sharon, and James Rosenquist’s Hole in the Center of the Clock – all wonderful works that we greatly appreciate having for the collection.
We are exceedingly proud to have our work included in the NGA’s collection.
