Opening Lecture, Landfall Press: Five Decades of Printmaking

Hear about the history of Landfall Press and the stories behind some of the workshop’s most significant prints, from Thomas Cvikota, guest curator and author of Landfall Press: Five Decades.

About the Exhibition
Landfall Press: Five Decades of Printmaking celebrates the history and innovation behind one of America’s most renowned printers-publishers on the occasion of its fiftieth anniversary year. Founded in 1970 by Jack Lemon, in Chicago, Landfall Press has cultivated a uniquely collaborative environment and produced work for many artists at different points in their career. The press has operated out of Santa Fe, New Mexico, since 2004.

The exhibition features approximately 100 editioned prints and printmaking materials from the Museum’s Landfall Press Archive, established in 1992, and reveals the various and often complex processes that go into printmaking at Landfall.
