We are very excited about the upcoming “Graphicstudio: Uncommon Practice at USF” exhibition at  Tampa Museum of Art! The exhibition opens on February 1, 2014 at the beautiful new TMA facility. We’ll be talking more about the show as the date draws near, but here is a little preview provided by On View magazine which has published a story in their most recent issue. Below is a preview, followed by a link to the full story.

Over one hundred leading international contemporary artists have created limited edition fine art works at Graphicstudio, the internationally recognized print atelier at the University of South Florida in Tampa. “Graphicstudio: Uncommon Practice at USF,” hosted by the Tampa Museum of Art from February 1 through May 18, 2014, will explore the incredible body of work produced by the studio.

The exhibition is co-organized by USF Contemporary Art Museum and the Tampa Museum of Art and will present over 110 artworks by 45 artists, including Louise Bourgeois, Chuck Close, Jim Dine, Roy Lichtenstein, Christian Marclay, Philip Pearlstein, Robert Rauschenberg, Ed Ruscha, and Kiki Smith. The range of artworks includes etchings, photo- and direct gravures, inkjet prints, cyanotypes, lithographs, woodcuts and screen prints, as well as sculpture in bronze, concrete, basalt, and cast epoxy resin.

Graphicstudio’s philosophy of providing artists with the freedom to experiment and pursue new directions to advance their practice, matched with an exceptionally talented staff, has attracted world-class contemporary artists to the USF campus. Their collaborative projects have produced print editions and multiples at the forefront of contemporary art.
