Do Ho Suh


Highpoint Editions @ Plains Art Museum

The Plains Art Museum in Fargo, ND will present an exhibition of HP prints this fall.  Entitled Beyond Order: Selections from Highpoint Editions, the exhibition will feature HP artists Carlos Amorales, Chloe Piene, Aaron Spangler and Do Ho Suh.

“Artworks in the exhibition explore the relationship between order and disorder, as well as individuality and collectivity. The selected works utilize an array of printmaking techniques culminating from each artist’s time spent in this regional print studio, which…is dedicated to advancing the wonderfully complicated and beautiful art of printmaking.” –Andy Maus, Director, Plains Art Museum

The exhibition will be on view September 17, 2016 through January 26, 2017.
