This exhibition focuses on recent acquisitions in contemporary prints and drawings. Among the many acquired through the generosity of the donors to the fund for contemporary art, the exhibition includes a recent ink drawing by Buffalo native Laylah Ali, part of her ongoing Typology series, in which she examines the many ways identity is manifested while referencing issues of race, class, gender, and power. Also included is four large-scale etchings by Amy Sillman that she completed at Crown Point Press in 2007. It is not only their subject matter that is closely related to Sillman's painting, but also their process. Sillman has noted, "Everything that is done in my paintings was taken apart layer by layer in printmaking. You take one hundred layers apart and figure out which six will work."
