Blanton Museum of Art
Accompanying The New York Graphic Workshop: 1964 â 1970 was an online educational resource that provided insight into the lives of the three participating artists. The exhibition, on display from September 2008 to January 2009 at the Blanton Museum of Art, investigated the New York Graphic Workshop and its members, Luis Camnitzer, JosÃ© Guillermo Castillo, and Liliana Porter, during the tenure of the Workshop (1964 to 1970). This exhibition was the first comprehensive presentation of a crucial, yet little-known episode in the history of American and Latin American Conceptual art. The mission of the three Latin American artists was to redefine the practice of printmaking in conceptual terms, focusing on the mechanical and repetitive nature of printmaking, rather than its traditional techniques.
The Blanton is recognized as a leader in the scholarship and presentation of Latin American art. Building on the museumâs 2007 exhibition, The Geometry of Hope, this exhibition further explores the contributions of Latin American artists to the modern and contemporary art narrative.
