City-Scapes: Silkscreen Prints by Photorealist Artists PosterThe Photorealist silkscreen prints in this 2012 exhibition explore the use of photographs in artistic production. Photorealism is a style of art that emerged in the United States in the mid-1960s as an offshoot of Pop art. Early Photorealist painters created what appeared to be an artistic replication of a photograph with no apparent comment. Artists also used different printing techniques to comment on the Photorealist reliance on photographs as source and subject.
