TAMPA, FL.- The Tampa Museum of Art announces the opening of Graphicstudio: Uncommon Practice at USF, a new exhibition featuring forty-five years of more than 110 original works by an international array of 45 of the 108 artists who have worked in residence at Graphicstudio, an atelier (workshop) located on the campus of the University of South Florida in Tampa, Florida.

On view February 1 through May 18, 2014, this exhibition was co-organized by the Tampa Museum of Art and the USF Contemporary Art Museum and curated by Jade Dellinger. Uncommon Practice is the most ambitious and comprehensive show to feature works from the workshop since the survey exhibition of the early years of Graphicstudio at the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C. in 1991. This exhibition represents the most significant and far-reaching collaboration to-date between the Tampa Museum of Art and the University of South Florida. A catalogue to commemorate the exhibition and the partnership will be published by D. Giles, Ltd of London, England.

Museum Executive Director, Todd D. Smith, remarked, “We are thrilled to showcase the exemplary artist collaborations and work developed at USF’s Graphicstudio. Co-organizing this exhibition with our colleagues at U.S.F. seemed a natural fit in showcasing the finest visual art projects at the forefront of contemporary art produced at this boundary-pushing atelier/research center.”

Margaret Miller, Director, Institute for Research in Art: Contemporary Art Museum | Graphicstudio Public Art adds, this exhibition is an opportunity for viewers to see a survey of works that represent leading international artists and affirms that printmaking is a primary medium for many contemporary artists.

The exhibition chronicles several aesthetic and technical conversations among artists of different generations. Often times, it is the invention of a new technology that transfixes the artists in residence. As former director, Alan Eaker noted, “It has always been the primary concern of Graphicstudio to make art that was phenomenal and along the way develop the technology to accomplish it.”

Highlighting both technical and conceptual breakthroughs, the exhibition includes seminal works spanning Graphicstudio’s forty-five year history (by Robert Rauschenberg, Jim Rosenquist, Ed Ruscha, Allan McCollum, Louise Bourgeois, Jim Dine, and others) with some of its most recent collaborative endeavors (by Christian Marclay, Mark Dion, Teresita Fernández, Los Carpinteros, and Trenton Doyle Hancock).
