Conversation with Ann Shafer, host of Platemark.
Aired October 31, 2023
Season 3, Episode 42: In s3e42, Platemark host Ann Shafer talks with Lauren Rosenblum and Christina Weyl about their exhibition on view at Print Center New York through December, 23, 2023. A Model Workshop: Margaret Lowengrund and The Contemporaries is the first exhibition to explore the legacy of Lowengrund (1902–1957), a visionary artist-advocate and entrepreneur.
In charting the institutional history of the hybrid print workshop-gallery she founded, The Contemporaries, and its later evolution into Pratt Graphic Art Center, A Model Workshop brings into focus the bustling printmaking scene of 1950s New York and reveals Lowengrund’s impact on postwar printmaking.
A Model Workshop: Margaret Lowengrund and The Contemporaries is curated by Lauren Rosenblum and Christina Weyl. It is on view September 21–December 23, 2023, at Print Center New York, 535 West 24th Street.
