Sicardi Gallery presents Liliana Porter: To See Gold and Other Prints opening reception
Sicardi Gallery will present To See Gold and Other Prints, the gallery's sixth solo exhibition of work by Liliana Porter, and the first to focus exclusively on the artist's prints.
Porter's extensive ouevre encompasses painting, photography, works on paper, installation, video and theater, but the medium of printmaking has been a constant in her production since the early 1960s. Shortly after moving to New York in 1964, she co-founded The New York Graphic Workshop, an important site for experimentation around the conceptual possibilities of the medium. Members of the NYGW were included in the seminal 1970 exhibition Information at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, and Porter was featured in a solo project at MoMA in 1973.
Featuring lithographs, etchings, embossings, digital embroidery prints, solar etchings, and photo-polymer gravures, the exhibition surveys some of the many different modes of printmaking that Porter has used since 1970. Liliana Porter: To See Gold and Other Prints coincides with Print Houston, the annual celebration of printmaking in Houston, hosted by Print Matters.]
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through August 29.
