Elena del Rivero: Home Address is a multi-venue project commemorating the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment and women’s right to vote. In honor of this milestone, artist Elena del Rivero (Spanish, b. 1949) created 19 flags to be hoisted at 19 organizations across the United States in 2020 and 2021. The flags, reminiscent of everyday stained cloth towels, prompt references to the kitchen as both a domestic and political space for female empowerment. On view across the United States, the project Home Address aims to acknowledge the local histories that shaped the broader national fight for equal rights. The artist, in collaboration with the host institution, dedicates the flag to an important woman of color in each community where immediate access to voting may not have been possible after passage of the 19th amendment.

An Art of Changes: Jasper Johns Prints, 1960-2018

On view April 29 through September 5, 2021

Jasper Johns "Target"

Jasper Johns (American, b. 1930) made his first print, a lithograph of a target, in 1960. He immediately realized that printmaking was the perfect medium through which to explore his interest in change. Since 1960, he has reworked many of his paintings in print form, using strategies such as fragmentation, doubling, mirroring, and variations in scale or color. To date, he has created more than 350 prints in intaglio, lithography, wood- and linoleum cut, screen printing, lead relief, and blind embossing. Because of his commitment to graphic art, his dazzling virtuosity, and his technical inventiveness, he is widely regarded as one of the greatest printmakers of the 20th century. An Art of Changes surveys Johns’s career as a printmaker though a selection of some 100 prints from 1960 through 2018. It is organized in four thematic sections that follow Johns as he revises and recycles key motifs over time, including his signature imagery of flags, targets, and maps. 

An Art of Changes: Jasper Johns Prints, 1960–2018 is organized by the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis.
