The Staatsgalerie, Stuttgart presents The Great Graphic Boom: Art in America,1960–1990.
In cooperation with the National Museum of Oslo, the Staatsgalerie Stuttgart will present exceptional works of American graphic art of the period from 1960 to 1990. Printmaking had previously served primarily to make religious or political content accessible to a broad public and as an important means communication in other areas as well. In the early twentieth century it was above all the German Expressionists who devoted themselves to this technique quite extensively. Decades later, in the late 1950s, the U.S. then experienced a veritable “graphic boom”. At this point in time, the most prominent artists of the American avant-garde – exponents of Abstract Expressionism, Hard Edge, Pop Art, Minimal Art and other currents – began experimenting and working with a wide variety of printmaking techniques.
