Exhibition / Terra Collection Initiative: Atelier 17 and Printmaking in Brazil and the United States, 1900-1950

Co-organized by Museu De Arte Contemporânea da Universidade de São Paulo (MAC-USP), and the Terra Foundation for American Art, this exhibition will be the first presentation of the collection of modern American prints donated by Nelson Rockefeller in 1950, and American prints donated by the collector Lessing J. Rosenwald in 1956.   Atelier 17 and Printmaking in Brazil and the United States, 1900-1950 includes early twentieth-century American prints, contextualized with modern prints by Brazilian artists such as Geraldo de Barros, Fayga Ostrower, and Livio Abramo who had direct ties to Atelier 17.  The exhibition examines the intricate network of international exchange between artists, curators, collectors, and audiences in Brazil and the United States.
