Spanning the period from the mid-1940s through the 1970s, Postwar Prints and Multiples: Investigating the Collection presents a selection of printed and editioned artworks from the permanent collection created by leading figures associated with European and American abstraction, Pop and Op art, and Conceptual art. This exhibition marks the second in a series that shines a spotlight on lesser-known areas of depth in the Museum’s holdings in preparation for the upcoming expansion of the permanent collection galleries.
