Stars: Contemporary Prints by Derrière L’Étoile Studio (Part Two)

Oct 05, 2013 - Mar 02, 2014
Eisenberg Gallery

Featuring significant contemporary prints by many of the artists who defined the American art scene after 1980, this exhibition series is the first survey of prints produced by the studio Derrière L’Étoile (“Behind the Star”). Founded in New York in 1978 by Maurice Sánchez—the master printer behind the creative stars—the studio has produced extraordinary prints in lithography and other traditional printmaking media, as well as with the latest photographic and digital technologies. 

Selected from the Zimmerli’s extensive print collection, this exhibition is displayed in three parts. Part One included prints from 1980 through the early 1990s, while Part Two spotlights the 1990s. 

Organized by Marilyn Symmes, Director, Morse Research Center for Graphic Arts and Curator of Prints
