The Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art presents Nkame, a solo exhibition of the late Cuban printmaker Belkis Ayón (1967-1999), who produced an extraordinary body of work central to the history of contemporary printmaking. Nkame presents 48 prints and audiovisual materials that encompass a wide range of the artist’s production from 1984 until her untimely passing in 1999. Ayón is highly regarded for her signature technique of collography, a printing process in which a variety of materials are collaged onto a cardboard matrix. Her palette of black, white and gray adds drama and mystery to her prints, many of them produced on a large scale.
