Exploring more than 60 years of Rufino Tamayo’s prints, Rufino Tamayo: "Innovation and Experimentation" showcases the artist’s extensive engagement with prints and his ambitions to add volume and texture to a traditionally two-dimensional medium. In these works, Tamayo's depictions and abstractions of the human figure are highlighted as fertile ground for formal experimentation. A selection of Mesoamerican sculpture complements the prints on view, examining an important source of inspiration for the artist. The exhibition, organized by and drawn exclusively from the collection of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, considers Tamayo’s longstanding interest in prints as a means of probing new techniques and furthering artistic investigation.
