 Lithograph by Robert Dowd

On View

9 February – 18 May 2018
Robert and Karen Hoehn Family Galleries

Art Cash considers the relationship between currency and fine art prints, focusing on the way that artists have explored the similarities between making art and making money in the 20th and 21st centuries. As the artists in this exhibition observe, paper money and fine art prints are both a kind of printed paper. This exhibition examines the workings of one through the other, from circulation and exchange to counterfeiting. The artists in this exhibition, including Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, John Baldessari, and Chuck Close make money as art, for exchange, and also as a form of protest.
