This fall, the Herron School of Art and Design at IUPUI presents a survey of collaborations between Herron alumnus Kenneth Tyler and some of the 20th century's most iconic artists in the Galleries at Herron September 19–November 10.

With a "no rules" mantra, master printer Kenneth Tyler worked with dozens of artists from 1966 through 2001 to create artwork that redefined the medium of fine art printmaking. Kenneth Tyler: The Art of Collaboration offers an intimate view into Tyler's visionary partnerships with Josef Albers, Helen Frankenthaler, David Hockney, Terence La Noue, Roy Lichtenstein, Joan Mitchell, Robert Motherwell, John Newman, Steven Sorman, Frank Stella and John Walker. In addition, the exhibition brings together artwork on loan from the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra, including the printing matrix for Frank Stella's Juam; archival photographs taken in the Tyler Graphics, Ltd. workshops during the time of the partnerships; and eight documentary films by Frank Cantor.

Kenneth Tyler: The Art of Collaboration is made possible by the generous support of the Allen Whitehill Clowes Charitable Foundation and the Sam Francis Foundation. In-kind support for the opening reception is provided by Sun King Brewery. Accompanying the exhibition is a fully illustrated, 44-page booklet containing Tyler's personal reflections and an essay by Jane Kinsman, head of international art at the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra.

A public talk with Tyler will occur during the opening reception from 5:30 to 8 pm Wednesday, September 19, at Eskenazi Hall, 735 W. New York St. The Galleries at Herron, located in Eskenazi Hall on the IUPUI campus, are free and open to public 10am–5pm Monday through Saturday and 10am–8pm Wednesdays.
