"Digital: Revolutions in Printmaking"
2001-06-22 until 2001-09-02
Brooklyn Museum of Art
Brooklyn, NY, USA

This is the 27th exhibition in the Print National series, a periodic survey of important developments in printmaking originated by the late BMA curator Una Johnson in 1947. This edition of the Print National will be comprised of approximately 84 works, some traditionally printed but manipulated by a computer and others created entirely in a computer.

The exhibition will include new works by many established artists, among them John Baldessari, Chuck Close, Jim Dine, Nam June Paik, Robert Rauschenberg, Kiki Smith, and James Turrell.

The relationship between art and technology varies from work to work. In some, the image is conceived and created in a computer and then printed digitally. In others, however, the traditional methods of intaglio, lithography, relief printing, or screenprinting were used to print an image developed in a computer. Such pieces rely on computers-- by downloading images from the Internet, scanning a design into the computer and altering it digitally, or by drawing an image with computer itself and transferring the result to the printing matrix.

In addition to these new works, the exhibition will feature classic prints from the Museum's permanent collection, including works by Warhol, Goya, Degas and Dürer. An introductory section of the exhibition will focus on the history of print technology and how to look at a print.
