Moab, a division of Legion Paper, the nation’s premier paper company dedicated to the art of the fine print, is proud to announce that Douglas Kirkland’s current exhibition, Out of Character, featuring portraits of all 20 Academy Award acting nominees, was printed entirely on Entrada Rag Natural 300 paper.
For the first time the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences has created a custom exhibition showcasing a limited edition set of large format 30”x40” portraits of this year’s nominees in the categories of Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor and Best Supporting Actress.
All portraits were photographed by Douglas Kirkland in Los Angeles between January 30th and February 6, 2012.
The signed, limited edition of three of each nominee's image was printed entirely on Moab’s Entrada Rag Natural 300. One set will be donated by Kirkland to the Academy’s Margaret Herrick Library; one as a personal gift to the nominee; and the third to be donated to each individual's charity of their choice.
The exhibition will be on view at The Academy Grand Lobby Gallery in Beverly Hills, California through Sunday, March 18.
