DESCRIPTION

See iconic, eye-catching works by bold-faced names in the contemporary art world. Ranging in date from the 1960s to the present, this exhibition showcases more than 90 original works on paper.

The selection will include important works by Josef Albers, Francis Bacon, Lee Bontecou, Louise Bourgeois, Francesco Clemente, Chuck Close, Jim Dine, Sam Francis, Helen Frankenthaler, Philip Guston, David Hockney, Howard Hodgkin, Jasper Johns, Ellsworth Kelly, Roy Lichtenstein, Joan Mitchell, Robert Motherwell, Elizabeth Murray, John Newman, Gerhard Richter, James Rosenquist, Susan Rothenberg, Sean Scully, Richard Serra, Lorna Simpson, Kiki Smith, Frank Stella, Andy Warhol, Terry Winters, and others.

Many of the editioned prints on view were produced in collaboration with nationally prominent print workshops and publishers, such as Universal Limited Art Editions; Gemini G.E.L.; Crown Point Press; Tyler Graphics; Pace Editions; Brooke Alexander Editions; and the Lower East Side Print Shop.

Selected works are donations from individuals, businesses, and foundations, given to the MIA since 2007. As such, the exhibition celebrates the generosity of the collecting community, whose ongoing support of the MIA's mission of collecting and exhibiting art of our time is essential.
