PAST: ART: "Multiplicity" at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, FRI, Nov 11th - SUN, March 11th, 2012 , Free
The concept of making multiple images from the same matrix has been integral to printmaking ever since the earliest prints were pulled from woodblocks and metal plates in the 15th century. Each impression is considered to be an original work of art. This exhibit features 83 works by contemporary artists, including John Baldessari, John Cage, Vija Clemins, Chuck Close, R. Luke DuBois, Sol LeWitt, Brice Marden, Julie Mehretu, Martin Puryear, Susan Rothenberg, Kiki Smith, and Kara Walker along with additional artists. Curated by Joann Moser. The works on view explore repetition, pairing and variations on a theme as artistic strategies.
