We recently received a note from Judith Brodie, Curator at the National Gallery of Art, about the inclusion of Graphicstudio’s sculpture edition of Roy Lichtenstein’s Brushstroke Chair and Ottoman in the Roy Lichtenstein: A Retrospective exhibition.
The USF Contemporary Art Museum is no stranger to the party scene. As part of CAM’s new event series known as “ART Thursdays”, the Andy Warhol Halloween Party paid homage to one of the most legendary figures in the art world.
What's the most exciting thing to happen to television since yesterday? An interview with the director of the USF Institute for Research in Art, Margaret Miller, of course!
Christian Marclay's unique cyanotype entitled Allover (Genesis, Travis Tritt, and Others), produced at Graphicstudio in 2008, has been included in an installation at MoMA, New York.
The last several months have been filled with awards and recognition for our friend Christian Marclay. Recent accolades include last year’s Venice Biennale Golden Lion award, and recognition from a Newsweek/Daily Beast blogger as one of the most important artists of today. And just this week, Christian was given an even more prodigious honor. He was named one of “The Most Influential People in the World,” by Time magazine.
Allan McCollum’s “Each and Every One of You” may have started out here in Tampa, as a Graphicstudio edition, but it has since traveled to La Salle de Bains in Lyon and Galerie Thomas Schulte in Berlin. And now, a commissioned version of the work entitled “One Thousand Women” has been installed at a flagship Chanel store in London.
This just in! A brand new Christian Marclay book, Cyanotypes, is available for purchase. The book includes unique cyanotypes Marclay produced here at Graphicstudio.
Check out this slideshow of our most recently completed public art projects from Alyson Shotz and Teresita Fernández. Both Shotz and Fernández have engaged with USF in the past.
