Sol LeWittColor Bands (from Wadsworth Portfolio), edition of 75, 2000Linocut. 29 X 29 in.
This exhibition traces printmaking's rise to prominence in postwar American art through works by renowned artists such as Chuck Close, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Rauschenberg, Kiki Smith, Kara Walker, and Andy Warhol. Informed by the central question "why printmaking?", it reveals the diverse ways artists have adopted, embraced, and transformed this versatile medium. Under Pressure considers major currents in contemporary art, including Abstract Expressionism, Pop Art, Photorealism, and Minimalism, as well as recent technological advancements that have reinvigorated the print's role in art production.
Under Pressure: Contemporary Prints from the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and his Family Foundation is organized by the Joslyn Art Museum, Omaha, NE and curated by Karin Campbell. The local presentation of this exhibition is curated by Stefano Catalani.
