Print/Out: Multiplied Art in the Information Era, 1990–2010
This survey of prints, books, multiples, and ephemera examines the evolution of artistic practices related to the print medium over the last two decades. From 1990 through today, the art world has broadened its geographic reach and opened itself to new continents, allowing for a significant cross-pollination between vernacular modes and post-conceptual strategies. From the resurgence of ancient printmaking techniques—often used alongside digital technologies—to the worldwide proliferation of self-published artists’ books and ephemera, prints, both in innovative and traditional forms, have played a key role in this exchange of ideas and sources. The exhibition brings together around 200 works drawn substantially from MoMA’s extensive collection of prints and books, with the addition of several important loans.
