Spanning three decades of Warhol's career, In Living Color: Andy Warhol and Contemporary Printmaking features some of the artist's most iconic screen prints, including his portraits of Marilyn Monroe and Mao Zedong, the splashy camouflage series, and the controversial Electric Chair portfolio. Drawn exclusively from the rich collections of Jordan Schnitzer and his Family Foundation, In Living Color is divided into five sections-experimentation, emotion, experience, subversion, and attitude. In each, Warhol's work is placed in conversation with other artists of the postwar era who use color as a tool to shape how we interpret and respond to images. Read More
MADISON MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART, MADISON, WI: FEBRUARY 6 - MAY 15, 2016
For over fifty years, Frank Stella has created a significant body of abstract art comprised of paintings, reliefs, sculptures, drawings, and prints. Frank Stella Prints: A Retrospective details the artist’s remarkable career as a printmaker. It presents, as evidence, over 100 prints that make apparent how his highly experimental endeavors have redefined the traditional print. The exhibition also offers a clear view of Stella’s stylistic evolution—a series of reinventions from the minimalist geometric abstraction of the early years to the baroque exuberance of the later gestural work.

UNIVERSITY OF WYOMING ART MUSEUM, LARAMIE, WY: JANUARY 30 - MAY 14, 2016
Kara Walker is one of the most successful and widely known contemporary African American artists today; she is remarkable for her radical engagement with issues of race, gender, and sexuality and the media with which she pursues her studies. Though mainly celebrated for her provocative installations, composed of cut-paper silhouettes, Walker’s work in other media is equally strong and expands on the many powerful themes and questions of her practice.
This retrospective of prints, featuring works from the series Emancipation and Harper’s Pictorial History of the Civil War, as well as selected other prints, videos and a wall silhouette, is organized by the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, University of Oregon, Eugene, from the Portland, Oregon-based collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer. Read More
PACIFIC NORTHWEST COLLEGE OF ART, PORTLAND, OR: JANUARY 19, 2015 - MARCH 12, 2016
Wangechi Mutu is a trained sculptor and studied anthropology but first came to prominence through her collage works, which fuse a diversity of sources culled from the image gluttony of late 20th century and early 21st century life. Mutu draws from the aesthetics of traditional ritual arts, science fiction, and Afrofuturistic funkdaleia.
