Join Hannah Chew ’23, student intern and exhibition contributor, for an introduction to the exhibition Prints from the Brandywine Workshop and Archives: Creative Communities, on view through July 31, 2022. Hannah will share insights about the research and preparation for this exhibition as a member of the project team.

Founded by Allan Edmunds in Philadelphia in 1972, the Brandywine Workshop and Archives provides a fertile environment for artists from diverse backgrounds to create cutting-edge prints. This exhibition marks the first presentation of a group of works acquired by the Harvard Art Museums from the workshop in 2018. Comprising prints and proofs by nearly 30 artists, the collection spans the history of the workshop, from the early 1970s to today, and includes works by well-known artists as well as those who had not yet found representation in the marketplace or museum collections when they arrived at Brandywine.

Our galleries are full of stories—this series of talks gives visitors a chance to hear the best ones! The talks highlight new works on view, take a fresh look at old favorites, investigate artists’ materials and techniques, and reveal the latest discoveries by curators, conservators, fellows, visiting artists, technologists, and other contributors.

Support for the Brandywine exhibition is provided by the Alexander S., Robert L., and Bruce A. Beal Exhibition Fund, the Fund for the Contemporary Art Department, and the Robert M. Light Print Department Fund. Related programming is supported by the M. Victor Leventritt Lecture Series Endowment Fund. Modern and contemporary art programs at the Harvard Art Museums are made possible in part by generous support from the Emily Rauh Pulitzer and Joseph Pulitzer, Jr., Fund for Modern and Contemporary Art.

Led by:
Hannah Chew, student intern, Division of Modern and Contemporary Art
