John Nixon: Four Decades, Five Hundred Prints

John Nixon – Four Decades, Five Hundred Prints is the first comprehensive survey of prints by John Nixon (1949–2020).

This exhibition offers an in-depth exploration of the artist’s entire oeuvre in a single medium, revealing a range of inventive techniques – from simple woodcuts, potato prints and stencils to more complex screenprints, stone lithographs and etchings. True to the experimental spirit of his art, Nixon freely expanded the category of printmaking by incorporating collage into his work or by printing onto everyday objects such as paper bags or newspapers.
