At Hammer Museum until August 29th
Features 43 portfolios of limited-editions prints by more than 40 prominent international artists who worked with master printer Jacob Samuel.
Some of us HPI staff members were able to join the exhibition walk-through with Jacob Samuel on the 19th, and it was amazing listening to Jacob speak on the technical aspects. It was a journey of collaborating with the artists that he chose and developing ways of making the centuries old etching process work with modern artists (some of who have never etched before).
For those curious on the different applications of Japanese Gampi paper (and other paper such as waxed Masa and Rives), the exhibition features many of our papers. They range from Surface Gampi to Natural Gampi to special ordered Shikibu Gampi, and more.
