Back by popular demand, revisit selections from our 2017 exhibition in a more intimate setting.

Whether highlighting a single artist’s trajectory over time, or merging the communal efforts of multiple artists around a unified theme or to commemorate a specific occasion, the portfolio as genre conceptualizes and presents works—principally prints and photographs—in a way that privileges a collective over an individual approach.

This exhibition draws from the Johnson’s permanent collection to showcase contemporary portfolios that tackle a broad range of subject matter and exhibit a variety of artistic strategies. Shared concerns across the seemingly disparate portfolios include ideas of chance, sequence, material, and artistic process.
