This exhibition celebrates the Museum’s recent acquisition of all the artworks commissioned by Parkett, a contemporary journal of art and ideas. Founded in the early 1980s to foster a critical dialogue between art constituencies of Europe and America, Parkett conceives each issue as a collaboration with one or more artists. The creation of editioned artworks is part of this interchange. On view are more than 150 page-art projects, prints, photographs, paintings, multiples, and works in other inventive formats. When seen together, they provide a survey of the richness and variety of art practice over the last eighteen years. Since the works are primarily small-scale, this overview is possible within the space of one gallery. Artists represented include established figures such as Sigmar Polke and Gerhard Richter as well as newer talents like Elizabeth Peyton and Kara Walker. Beginning with Enzo Cucchi and the Neo-Expressionist movement of the 1980s, this project continues with work ranging from the abstract painting of Ellsworth Kelly to the post-Pop constructions of Damien Hirst, and including myriad approaches in between.

Organized by Deborah Wye, Chief Curator, Department of Prints and Illustrated Books.

This exhibition is made possible by Joanne M. Stern and by Agnes Gund and Daniel Shapiro. Additional support is provided by the Associates of the Department of Prints and Illustrated Books, The Contemporary Arts Council, The Junior Associates, and the Young Print Collectors of The Museum of Modern Art.
