Andy Warhol to Damien Hirst -
The Revolution in Printmaking
From 24 February 2023
In keeping with international developments and tendencies in the art world, the ALBERTINA Museum’s collection of printed graphics reflects important post-1945 phenomena in light of outstanding examples. American pop and minimal art are present in the form of works by Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, Roy Lichtenstein and Agnes Martin, while Germany’s artists are represented comprehensively by Georg Baselitz, Jörg Immendorff, Anselm Kiefer, and others.
The selection here also encompasses art by more recent figures, with contemporary approaches to traditional techniques such as woodcut featured alongside innovative works that exploit creative possibilities offered by new printing technologies.
This exhibition presents around 100 key works of post-1945 art history, some of them in large formats, that simultaneously embody principal elements of the ALBERTINA Museum’s present day collection.
This exhibition is on view from 24 February to 23 July 2023 at the ALBERTINA MODERN.
