Print Beyond Pop
Print Beyond Pop: American Lithography After 1960
August 17, 2015 - October 24, 2015
This exhibition looked at a critical moment for American lithography using objects from the OSU Museum of Art collection. Presenting a diverse group of artists and styles, this exhibition explored the re-emergence of lithography in American art after 1960. Known as a commercial printing method, lithography became popular with the Pop artists of the 1960s, but its influence and importance extended far beyond the Pop Art movement. Two workshops, Universal Limited Art Editions (Bay Shore, NY) and Tamarind (Albuquerque, NM), were critical to the lithography revival and its spread beyond Pop Art imagery.
Print Beyond Pop included works by artists such as Robert Rauschenberg, Jim Dine, and Lee Bontecou, who produced prints at these workshops and reinvigorated the creation of lithographs for generations of artists.
Student Curators: Stacy Bush, Stacey Durham, Teresa Kilmer, Kimberly Morton, Sarah Pons, and Jessica Provencher. This exhibition is the culmination of the Museum Exhibition class taught by Dr. Cristina González, Associate Professor of Art History, in Spring 2015.
