Contemporary printmaking is flourishing, with artists turning to new digital approaches, renewing age-old techniques, and printing on and with alternative materials and tools. Today artists use a myriad of printed formats, from the traditional intimacy of the singular sheet or book, to expansive multipart projects and installations that run floor to ceiling and wall to wall.

Since 2000: Printmaking Now demonstrates the vitality of current printmaking by showcasing works created since 2000 and acquired by the Department of Prints and Illustrated Books. The exhibition highlights projects never before seen at the Museum, by young artists new to printmaking as well as by more established figures.

Organized by Judy Hecker, Assistant Curator, Department of Prints and Illustrated Books, The Museum of Modern Art.

How we identified these works

In 2018–19, MoMA collaborated with Google Arts & Culture Lab on a project using machine learning to identify artworks in installation photos. That project has concluded, and works are now being identified by MoMA staff.
