EXPERIMENTS IN ELECTROSTATICS: PHOTOCOPY ART FROM THE WHITNEY'S COLLECTION 1966-1986

November 17th 2017 - March 25th 2018

99 Gansevoort Street, New York, NY 10014

Experiments in Electrostatics: Photocopy Art from the Whitney’s Collection, 1966–1986 explores the use of the photocopier as a creative tool, from its public emergence in the 1960s to the dawn of the digital era in the 1980s. Despite the machine’s intended function to reproduce office documents, artists inventively utilized it as a camera and printing press to create original fine art prints. Focusing on three artists and one collective—Edward Meneeley, Lesley Schiff, Barbara T. Smith, and the International Society of Copier Artists—this exhibition investigates how artists found self-expression through a machine designed for replication.

Pace Prints | Sol LeWitt

October 27, 2017 - December 2, 2017

Pace Prints, 521 West 26th Street, 3rd Floor
New York, NY 10001, United States +Google Map

This exhibition highlights a variety of works from the artist’s print œuvre, spanning from the 1980s to early 2000s. Prominently featured is Horizontal Color Bands and Vertical Color Bands, a set of seven etchings with aquatint. Here, LeWitt uses the inherent quality of the aquatint medium to showcase the vibrant palette produced by overlapping “2 and 3 part combinations“ of primary colors and gray. A pioneer of conceptual art, LeWitt helped to transform the definition of contemporary art in the 1960s with his statement that “the idea becomes a machine that makes the art.” Reducing form down to its essential, the cube became the base unit for LeWitt’s artistic inquiry.
