About The Exhibition

Curated by Helen Frederick
September 18-November 14, 2021
Online & In-Person

Pyramid presents an exhibition of work not seen by the public in over a decade. Founder Helen C. Frederick curates the show from an archive of over 700 pieces made by more than 260 artists at Pyramid under her leadership. These works include editioned prints, pulp paintings, and art books primarily made between 1981 and 2007. In addition to paying homage to the breadth of talent that has made work at Pyramid, the exhibition brings exciting revelations and rare finds from artists, many of whom have since achieved greater acclaim.
