Pace Prints is pleased to present New Dimensions: Beyond the Boundaries of Printmaking a thematic group show to be presented simultaneously online and by appointment at 521 West 26th Street, through September 12.
Pace Prints has long championed multi-dimensional prints, starting with Lucas Samaras’s 1968 Book, a boundary-breaking multiple that functioned as both sculpture and artist book. This founding project was followed by multiples made of cast resin, cast paper, silkscreened canvas and scrolls by Jean Dubuffet and Louise Nevelson in the 1970s. The goal at Pace Prints has always been to give an artist every possibility, even while making projects that challenge the broadly accepted concept of prints as ink on paper. New Dimensions focuses on six artists who exemplify experimentation in printmaking in the 21st Century: Jane Hammond, Arturo Herrera, Nicola López, Santi Moix, Wangechi Mutu and Kiki Smith.
These works employ a wide range of printmaking techniques (collagraph, linocut, etching, screenprinting, digital printmaking) and a host of applied materials (mylar, vellum, collaged and cut paper, felt and gold leaf).
