DESCRIPTION

Multiplicity showcases more than 80 prints by modern and contemporary American artists working in an exciting variety of media. Drawn from the outstanding collections of the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the exhibition demonstrates how artists today engage with the unique qualities of printmaking processes. Paintings and sculptures by a number of the artists featured, including Chuck Close, Helen Frankenthaler, Al Held, and Kiki Smith will be on view in the museum’s Haslinger collection galleries, allowing visitors to better understand the scope of those artists’ creative output. The variety of innovative approaches artists use to create prints is apparent in works by such artists as Louise Bourgeouis, Jim Dine, Barbara Kruger, Julie Mehretu, Ed Ruscha, and Kara Walker.
