This exhibition from MOMA makes heavy use of Flash animation to present a survey of European art, from the 1960s to the present. As the subtitle states, the focus of the exhibition is printmaking, including posters and silkscreen prints, artists' books, and other multiples, often employing techniques formerly used in the commercial sector, that many artists "borrowed" and began using in the 1960s. The exhibition itself is styled to look like newspaper pages or broadsides, with each theme - Mass Mediums, Language, Confrontations, Expressionist Impulse, British Focus, and Recent Projects - presented on its own front page. There is also an index browse, so that viewers can approach the works by name, selecting from the over 100 artists and studios represented. And, since a good number of the pieces have several parts, either a run of prints, or pages of a book, some of the individual artists' entries are animated as well - for example, there is a Gilbert & George postal sculpture that plays through several sets of images; two etchings from David Hockney's A Rake's Progress display sequentially; and four sheets from the late Martin Kippenberger's Courage To Print, a portfolio of 23 posters, flip by.
