These lectures, given by Jennifer L. Roberts, focus on the material and spatial metamorphoses of the printmaking process and trace their social and conceptual implications: pressure becomes a tool for confronting questions of oppression; reversal creates structures for negotiating difference; the pa...

Must see exhibitions : ) The best in portraiture and not what you'd expect! ON VIEW NOW! The Outwin 2019: American Portraiture Today – Oct. 26 – Aug. 30, 2020
The National Portrait Gallery is reigniting the Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition for 2019, which asks artists to submit innovative works in the art of portrayal, resulting in an awe-inspiring variety of pieces. See the work of 46 finalists in the resulting exhibition, which is opened by an announcement of prizewinners. The grand prize is $25,000 and the opportunity to create a piece for the Portrait Gallery’s permanent collection. Visitors will marvel at how artists of today use a wide range of tools, devices and media to re-imagine portraiture.

ON VIEW NOW! THE FREER GALLERY
‘Hokusai: Mad about Painting’ – Nov. 23 – Nov. 2020
While Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai is mainly known for his unforgettable and iconic Great Wave Off the Coast of Kanagawa, he composed thousands of pieces during his nearly 90 years on Earth. The Freer Gallery, in honor of the centennial of its namesake’s death, will present a wide range of Hokusai’s works that were acquired by Charles Lang Freer roughly a century ago. Visitors will be able to experience Hokusai’s mastery in woodblock printing, painting, drawing and view his renderings of everyday Japanese life, known as manga.
