Life on Paper
Contemporary Prints from South Africa
September 19–December 17, 2017
Davis Museum Freedman Lober Viewing Alcove
Taught in both academic institutions and community education centers, printmaking has long held a prominent place in South African modern and contemporary art. Life on Paper: Contemporary Prints from South Africa investigates the existential questions raised by diverse artists in drypoints, lithographs, screenprints, woodcuts, and more. The exhibition honors recent gifts to the collection by the Artist Proof Studio (Johannesburg) and Dr. Pamela Allara, Brandeis University Associate Professor Emerita of Contemporary Art.
Curated by Amanda Gilvin, assistant curator, and presented with generous support from the Constance Rhind Robey ’81 Fund for Museum Exhibitions.
