Dimensions of Form: Tamayo and Mixografia

Dimensions of Form: Tamayo and Mixografia addresses the artistic legacy of modern master Rufino Tamayo (1899-1991). In this display of boundary-breaking work, fifty prints on loan from Mixografía® studio in LA depicting celestial bodies and serpent-gods accompanies an 1,800-pound lithographic stone plate, revealing the innovation behind Tamayo’s three-dimensional masterpieces.

The Mixografía printmaking technique is a unique fine art printing process that allows for the production of three-dimensional prints with elements of relief, texture and very fine surface detail. Since its inception, the mixografia process has been utilized by many contemporary artists including John Baldessari, Ed Ruscha, Analia Saban, Jonas Wood, Alex Israel, and more.
