Gallery Talk: Prints from the Brandywine Workshop and Archives: Creative Communities
Join Sophie Lynford, curatorial fellow and exhibition contributor, for an introduction to the exhibition Prints from the Brandywine Workshop and Archives: Creative Communities, on view through July 31, 2022. Lynford will share insights about the research and preparation for this exhibition as one of the label authors.
Founded by Allan Edmunds in Philadelphia in 1972, the Brandywine Workshop and Archives provides a fertile environment for artists from diverse backgrounds to create cutting-edge prints. This exhibition marks the first presentation of a group of works acquired by the Harvard Art Museums from the workshop in 2018. Comprising prints and proofs by nearly 30 artists, the collection spans the history of the workshop, from the early 1970s to today, and includes works by well-known artists as well as those who had not yet found representation in the marketplace or museum collections when they arrived at Brandywine.
Our galleries are full of stories—this series of talks gives visitors a chance to hear the best ones! The talks highlight new works on view, take a fresh look at old favorites, investigate artists’ materials and techniques, and reveal the latest discoveries by curators, conservators, fellows, visiting artists, technologists, and other contributors.
