Picker Art Gallery Exhibition—EXXIT: Prints for the 21st century
During its 30 years of operation, Manhattan-based alternative art space, Exit Art was a place for underrepresented and outsider artists—including many minority, LGBTQ, and women artists—to come together, create, exhibit, perform, and ultimately, to advance the story of what constitutes art and who can make it. EXXIT: Prints for the 21st century presents 50 prints by artists such as Sanford Biggers, Chitra Ganesh, Catherine Opie, and Do Ho Suh, who contributed to Exit Art for their benefit print portfolios. The entire collection of prints donated by Exit Art to the Picker Art Gallery after its closure in 2012 are on view for the first time. Addressing many contemporary issues surrounding race, inequity, and identity, the variety of images and themes, identities and techniques, perfectly captures the spirit of collaboration, experimentation, and inclusion that Exit Art was founded upon.
Generous support for the exhibition was provided by the Robert J. Gerberg ’59, P’85 Endowment for the Visual Arts. On view at the Picker Art Gallery until May 23, 2021. Due to COVID restrictions, the museum is open by appointment only for up to 10 visitors at a time. Please visit colgate.edu/picker to book a time to visit.
