Beyond Big: Oversized Prints, Drawings and Photographs

Wednesday, March 16, 2005 – Sunday, July 31, 2005

In the last half of the 20th century, advances in technology have permitted artists to create prints and photographs of unprecedented scale. With equipment and paper now being produced in sizes that rival dimensions that only paintings and some drawings achieved in the past, the nature of composition is as broad as it has ever been. This exhibition presents many recently acquired large works on paper such as photographs by Abelardo Morrell, Anna Gaskell, Jenny Gage, Justin Kurland and Gregory Crewdson with prints by Richard Diebenkorn and Jasper Johns, along with drawings and other older posters already in the collection by such artists as Robert Rauschenber, Judy Pfaff and Charles Burchfield, among many others.
