Abstract Generation: Now in Print
February 13–June 24, 2013
The Paul J. Sachs Prints and Illustrated Books Galleries, second floor
Since the early 20th century, abstraction has been associated with so many artistic movements, from Suprematism and Constructivism to Abstract Expressionism and Op art, that it can no longer be defined by any one style or tradition. Indeed, abstraction exists now as a rich and varied trove of formal languages and ideas—an open source of inspiration that extends well beyond the boundaries of art. This exhibition focuses on the print medium, highlighting ways in which abstraction has played a generative role in works of the past decade. Featuring prints, artists’ books, and multiples from the Museum’s collection—by artists such as Cory Arcangel, Tauba Auerbach, Philippe Decrauzat, Liam Gillick, Wade Guyton, Nadia Kaabi-Linke, R. H. Quaytman, and Haegue Yang—Abstract Generation examines contemporary notions of abstraction through a range of contemporary practices.
Organized by Kim Conaty, The Sue and Eugene Mercy, Jr., Assistant Curator of Prints and Illustrated Books.
The exhibition is made possible by Anna Marie and Robert F. Shapiro.
