I recently rediscovered a very informative digital exhibit created by The Museum of Modern Art that’s both interactive and informative.
The miniature digital exhibit, entitled What is a Print?, provides animated, step-by-step instructions of major printing processes pertinent to historical and contemporary art history. The screenshot above illustrates a step in the stone lithographic process.
For any print enthusiast, it’s a fun and insightful look into the processes which inform the manner and aesthetic in which we work today; the complex operations are presented in a very understandable and illustrative manner. The exhibit also provides examples of work from major art figures who have utilized the demonstrated processes in their own practice.
