10 June-9 October 2011. This themed exhibition traces the history of photographically-produced images through the various forms of printmaking.
The show begins with the 1960s Pop Art movement when the traditional silkscreen printmaking process was challenged by the introduction of photographic templates.
In the 1970s-1980s, printmaking adapted to the rapidly changing times in which it found itself, with offset lithographic printing, etching, photogravure and woodcuts all embracing a photographic element.
Since the 1990s the medium continues to evolve constantly thanks to the advent of digital photography and its myriad of editing tools.
Artists featured in the exhibition include Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, Sigmar Polke, Richard Hamilton, Gerhard Richter, Franz Gertsch, Simon Starling and Eberhard Havekost.
Tues-Sun 10.00-18.00 (Mon closed)
