Centering on Harvard's collection of Johns's signature "crosshatch" works of the 1970s, this exhibition explores the impact of print on his oeuvre. It examines "print" and "the press" in terms not only of printmaking and Johns's celebrated experiments in that medium, but also in informational terms, tracing his frequent use of newspaper collage and its material, temporal, and political implications. Also featured is comparative material exploring Johns's relationship to the history of printing.
