The Future is Female but so is the past. With or without the visibility they deserve, women have engaged the art of printmaking from its beginning. Technically sophisticated and physically demanding, the art of producing multiple images (impressions) from a single plate (a matrix) takes many forms, including etching, engraving, lithography, woodcut, and silkscreen. The second half of the 20th century witnessed an explosion of interest in the medium’s creative potential. Today many artists embrace printmaking for its ability to create editions consisting of multiple prints of the same image, each with the integrity of an original work of art. This exhibition highlights contemporary women artists in the LUAG Teaching Museum
permanent collection, including Faith Ringgold, Janet Fish, Maud Morgan, Matsubara Naoko, Françoise Gilot, Nancy Spero, Marisol Escobar, Bridget Riley, Carmen Herrera, Belkis Ayón, and Käthe Kollwitz.
