The Met 150 is a portfolio of twelve prints created by artists of different generations from around the world who have a strong association with the Museum in celebration of the Met's 150th anniversary. The prints in The Met 150 encourage a new way of seeing and responding to the world in its complexity. Rather than a particular aesthetic, movement, or technique, they speak to a moment when artists reassess the possibilities for printmaking, redefining practices and challenging conventions. Several artists refer to printmaking’s rich history through their use of traditional methods, whereas others combine various techniques, practices, and materials or employ new technologies to rethink what a print can be. The twelve prints in The Met 150 vividly capture the engaging and innovative practices of the artists involved, as well as a range of responses to the present moment in all its intricacy and contradictions. This engagement with an ever-changing world is central to The Met’s mission and its aspirations for the future.
