We’re delighted by all of the great press we’ve been getting for our exhibition Jasper Johns / In Press: The Crosshatch Works and the Logic of Print. Thank you to the reviewers who shared the story of our show, from inception as an undergraduate seminar to culmination as a full-fledged museum exhibition, and perfectly captured the themes of the exhibition, while offering insights of their own.
