This exhibition traces more than three decades of collaborations between renowned Los Angeles based print and publishing workshop Mixografia and key figures of 20th and 21st century art.
Following on a long historical tradition based on the melding of Mesoamerican culture and European printmaking, Mixografia emerged in 1968 quickly gaining recognition as a maverick in the field with its 1970’s collaborations with Rufino Tamayo. An inheritor of the graphic explosion of the revolutionary years in Mexico, the workshop opened its Los Angeles workshop in 1983 and has continued to innovate in its production of three-dimensional prints and castings extending on its achievements with the challenges of each collaboration.
Mixografia’s works have been exhibited at a number of art institutions including the Staadliche Kunsthalle, Berlin, Palazzo Strozzi, Florence, Hermitage Museum, Leningrad, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Los Angeles, Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid, Museum of Modern Art, New York, and the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.
