Contemporary Art on Paper
February 9, 2007 - April 22, 2007

Selected from one of the liveliest sectors of the Museum's collection of works of art on paper, this exhibition presents mostly large, contemporary art from the Department of Prints, Drawings, and Photographs. Many of these objects have only been seen recently by visitors to the department’s study room and several have never before been shown in the galleries.

Featuring about fifty works by artists from North America, Europe, Asia, and Africa, the selection includes prints by Edward Ruscha, Sarah Sze, Not Vital, and Kara Walker; drawings by Heide Fasnacht, Anish Kapoor, and Laurie Reid; and photographs by Peter Campus, Eileen Neff, Javier Vallhonrat, and Zhang Huan.

These works of art are on view as Department of Prints, Drawings, and Photographs relocates its collection, study room, offices, and work rooms to spacious new quarters in the Ruth and Raymond G. Perelman Building.
