About the Exhibition
This exhibition presents a glimpse into recent and innovative uses of graphite. A form of crystallized carbon, graphite is a naturally occurring mineral as well as a synthetic, industrial product that can be processed and in multiple ways. It can be machined or carved, used as a powder or liquid, or handled as a lump, stick, or pencil. Graphite gathers together works that reveal the material’s potential to take a variety of forms and yield a wide range of visual effects.

The first major museum exhibition to explore graphite as a medium in works beyond drawings, Graphite includes sculpture, drawing, and installations created over the past decade—including several newly commissioned works—by emerging and established artists. Learn more.
