Printed Stories presents a selection of modern and contemporary prints from the Anderson Collection of Graphic Arts into which narratives—whether or not they were intended by the artists—might be read or construed. Through the artists’ textual and visual prompts, the exhibition encourages the viewer’s imagination to roam freely, filling in the narrative spaces suggested by the prints on view.
