Presses, Plotters, Plates, Algorithms: AI Artmaking and Tools of Print and Drawing

 

The intersections between artificial intelligence and artmaking were forged long before today’s AI image making tools, and many foundational works have important ties with drawing and printmaking processes. Organized on the occasion of the exhibition Harold Cohen: AARON at the Whitney Museum of American Art, this conversation will explore Cohen’s groundbreaking AARON project, the software he developed in the late 1960s that drives plotting and painting machines in the creation of new work. Join Christiane Paul, Curator of Digital Art and curator of the exhibition, and Kim Conaty, Steven and Ann Ames Curator of Drawings and Prints, both at the Whitney, for a dialogue about creativity, authorship, and collaboration. 

 

Offered in conjunction with the exhibition Harold Cohen: AARON at the Whitney Museum of American Art.

American Art Posters from the Leonard A. Lauder Collection with Allison Rudnick, Associate Curator, Drawings and Prints, The Metropolitan Museum of Art

 

During the 1890s, a new type of poster emerged in the United States, one that more closely resembled a work of art than an advertisement. Thanks to recent advancements in printing techniques, artists could create colorful, inventive compositions that seamlessly integrated text and images.

Lauder Collection at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Up Towards the Daylight: A Conversation on the work of William Kentridge with Judy Hecker, Jillian Ross, and Phil Sanders

 

Two large-scale works by William Kentridge, The Old Gods Have Retired and The Flood, on view as a special project at the 2024 IFPDA Fair, serve as a jumping off point for conversation on the decades-long dedication to printmaking by Kentridge, who will be featured in a new video interview with Phil Sanders. Kentridge’s works are as visually and physically layered as the human narratives influencing their meaning, weaving together contemporary and historic political and social themes, often using his native South Africa as a stand in for universal struggles for self determination.

 

Judy Hecker, an early supporter of Kentridge’s work, authored Trace (MoMA, 2010), part catalog and part artist book, as an accompaniment to the presentation of William Kentridge: Five Themes at MoMA -- the first comprehensive survey of the artist’s career presented in New York. Hecker currently serves as Executive Director of Print Center New York.

Jillian Ross is a collaborative master printer based in Saskatoon, Canada. Ross began working at the David Krut Workshop (Johannesburg, South Africa) in 2003 where she became one of William Kentridge’s primary print collaborators, completing some of Kentridge’s most ambitious print projects including: The Universal Archive, the Triumphs and Laments woodcut series, and most recently the Studio Life photogravures. Ross was responsible for implementing the two works on view, loaned by David Krut.

 

Sanders has been involved with the David Krut Workshop in Johannesburg, South Africa since 2008 where he has served as an advisor to many of the monumental projects published with Kentridge. Remembering is the Effort, a catalog raisonné of the works of Kentridge published by David Krut over the past 30 years, authored by Phil Sanders and Jacqueline Flint, is due out this fall. Sanders authored Prints and Their Makers, winner of the 2021 IFPDA Book Award.

Reframing German Expressionism: Jay A. Clarke, Starr Figura, and Freyda Spira in conversation

 

In 2024, three major US exhibitions will reexamine and reframe the work of Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Käthe Kollwitz, Paula Modersohn-Becker, and Edvard Munch: Munch and Kirchner: Anxiety and Expression (Yale University Art Gallery, Feb 16  -  June 23) considers the work of Munch and Kirchner from the perspective of mental health. Käthe Kollwitz (Museum of Modern Art, New York, March 31 - July 20) spotlights Kollwitz’s role as an agent of social change and female empowerment. Paula Modersohn-Becker: I am Me (Neue Galerie New York, June 6 - Sept 9, and Art Institute of Chicago, Oct 12 - Jan 12, 2025) addresses Modersohn-Becker's innovative style and unconventional view of women. Join the curators for a round-table discussion about these projects and how four path breaking artists used prints and drawings to ask new questions and address different audiences.
