"On Paper II: 50 Works from the Collection"
2001-02-10 until 2001-05-06
Carnegie Museum of Art
Pittsburgh, PA, USA

The varied uses of paper as a medium for contemporary artists is the focus of On Paper II, an exhibition on view in the museum's Forum Gallery. Some fifty recently acquired works on paper in the museum's collection have been created from methods as ancient as woodblock printing to the digitally captured and inkjet printed images of today.

Three early Philip Pearlstein drawings depict the daily life of American GIs during World War II and illustrate drawing's time-honored role in a fresh and intimate way. Prints in this show range from wood engravings to lithographs, linocuts and serigraphs. Examples include Vija Celmins wood engraving Ocean Surface 2000, 2000, Helen Frankenthaler's Madame Butterfly, 2000, a woodcut in three parts, and Brice Marden's Untitled, 2000, a series of seven prints, which includes two-color etchings and four-color lithographs. Kara Walker's Emancipation Approximation, 1999-2000, first seen as a work of paper in the 1999 Carnegie International, has been made into a series of serigraphs; two are on view.

Photography, today, is the most widespread form of art on paper. Twelve color photographs from Olafur Eliasson's 1999 Iceland Series and Chuck Close's Self Portrait, 1999, are in this show. An earlier work by Close, Lorna I, is also on view.
