Curators Christina Weyl and Lauren Rosenblum look back at printmaking in New York with a retrospective of Lowengrund’s contributions to the midcentury art scene. Theirs is the first exhibition to focus solely on the artist, critic, and gallery director’s enduring impact as an unsung leader of printmaking and a driving force behind the resurgence of lithography. Her gallery and printmaking workshop The Contemporaries was commended by the New York Times in 1955 for its selection of prints, drawings, and sculpture by the likes of Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque. This show examines her legacy through 79 prints, along with drawings, videos, and one sculpture, some of her own creation and others by the legions of artists she championed at The Contemporaries.
