The exhibition explores the evolution of fine printmaking in the United States after the 1960s and feature several important prints and multiples gifted to Pérez Art Museum Miami from Holding Capital Group Inc., including works by Jasper Johns, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Rauschenberg and James Rosenquist. These works are augmented by additional prints and objects loaned from the Holding Capital Group collection, which has been carefully assembled over the last 30 years and illuminates the significance of printmaking within the contemporary art context. Beyond the Limited Life of Painting examines more than 50 years of printmaking, tracing its historic importance to public debate in the 1930s and 1940s to its emergence as a valued artistic medium in the Pop art movement of the 1950s and 1960s and through to its role in today’s creative production. The exhibition focuses in particular on the generation of artists in the postwar period, who rejected Abstract Expressionism and actively returned to representation. Artists in the exhibition include Ellsworth Kelly, Jane Hammond, Sol LeWitt, Elizabeth Murray, Isamu Noguchi, Kiki Smith and Andy Warhol, among numerous others.
