Art on paper can take on myriad forms and expressions, each work revealing a glimpse into the struggles and beauty of so many different worlds. Over the last decade, Elizabeth Kathleen Mitchell, Interim Co-Director for the Cantor Arts Center and the Burton and Deedee McMurtry Curator overseeing prints, drawings, and photographs, has acquired a diverse collection of works on paper by artists working in the United States, Latin America, Africa, Europe, and the Middle East. A selection of these acquisitions are featured in the new exhibition Paper Chase: Ten Years of Collecting Prints, Drawings, and Photographs at the Cantor. Running from Sept. 29, 2021, through Jan. 30, 2022, this much-anticipated installation features more than 100 objects, many that have never before been exhibited at the Cantor, including multiple works by major artists from a host of different cultures, backgrounds, and countries, such as Lee Friedlander (U.S.A., b. 1934), José Clemente Orozco (Mexico, 1883–1949), Carrie Mae Weems (U.S.A., b. 1953), and Malick Sidibé (Mali, 1936–2016).
