Viewers can expect works of power

Mixografia-main

 

Going on view, Friday, June 3, 2016 and featuring the work of 60 different artists, this exhibition includes powerful, representative work by some of the biggest names in the contemporary art world, including John Baldessari, Louise Bourgeois, Alberto Burri, Ed Ruscha, Kiki Smith and Rachel Whiteread.

Curators Lynn Boland and Pierre Daura of European Art at the Georgia Museum of Art presents “Paper in Profile: Mixografia and Taller de Gráfica Mexicana”, features a wide range of works by artists who have collaborated with the workshop and includes some large-scale serial installations. The exhibition also includes didactic displays demonstrating the Mixografia techniques and archival documents on important moments in the workshop’s history. Exhibition texts will be available in English and Spanish, including a catalogue will accompany the exhibition.

Founded in Mexico City as Taller de Grafica Mexicana in 1968 and based in Los Angeles since the mid-1980s, the Mixografia workshop produces and publishes handmade paper prints, multiples, and sculptures that expand the possibilities of editions by allowing artists to incorporate previously unheard of dimension and detail, creating three-dimensional prints, or relief sculpture in paper. The “prints,” each a single sheet of paper, can be as deep as two inches, allowing an entirely new level of trompe l’oeil. Since its inception, the workshop has helped artists realize their visions through processes and styles unique to each artist. At the same time, while they take countless forms, they are unmistakably Mixografia.
