Exhibited in conjunction with X: A Decade of Collecting, this group of prints, drawings, and photographs is a representative selection of the 1,517 works on paper that entered the collection from 2012 through 2022.

Paper’s versatility and accessibility allow for groundbreaking experimentation among collaborators in printmaking studios, by photographers toward their subjects, and in artists’ use of their chosen media. This exhibition highlights those innovative relationships that result in works on paper.
