Lux et Tenebrae
Twenty Years Peter Blum Edition

June 17 – September 9, 2000
at Peter Blum SoHo

This year marks the twentieth anniversary of Peter Blum Edition. 33 portfolios have been published since 1980. A selection thereof will be featured in this exhibition, including John Baldessari, Louise Bourgeois, Enzo Cucchi, Helmut Federle, Eric Fischl, Alex Katz, Sherrie Levine, David Rabinowitch, Rosemarie Trockel, James Turrell, Terry Winters, Yukinori Yanagi and Robert Zandvliet.

Starting with a suite of lithographs by Enzo Cucchi in 1980, Peter Blum has continued publishing portfolio prints and special editions books ever since. Print-making is first and foremost a collaborative medium. Close interaction between the master printer with his technical skills, and the artist with his aesthetic and creative concerns, can generate dazzling combinations of printing methods and other experiments that enlarge the capabilities of the medium. The role of the publishers is perhaps the least understood side of the story, although they have often been catalysts in introducing contemporary artists to the graphic medium, and as a result have expanded the possibilities of both the medium itself and the artist's vocabulary and vision.

Please see the attached sheet for the complete list of artists published by Peter Blum Edition since 1980.
