New Prints 2005/Spring is one of a series of juried exhibitions organized by IPCNY four times each season featuring current prints made by artists at all stages of their careers.

For the first time in the history of the New Prints Program, IPCNY invited an individual artist, Kiki Smith, to make the selections for the exhibition.

IPCNY received approximately 1,350 submissions of which seventy-seven prints by fifty-two artists were selected for inclusion in the exhibition. All prints were released within the past year. With New Prints 2005/Spring, IPCNY continues its presentations of contemporary artists' prints, creating an ongoing exhibition venue for new work and a central source of information about artists working in the medium of printmaking.

Bindert, Jeanette Bokhour, Sylvia Buettner, Stephen Chambers, Niamh Clancy, Shoshana Dentz, Steve DiBenedetto, Aleksandar Duravcevic, Amze Emmons, Daniel Falco, Cynthia Farnell, Orna Feinstein, Lori Field, Beth Ganz, Talia Greene, Tom Hammick, Valerie Hammond, Orit Hofshi, Joe Immen, Robert Jones, Lorien S.

Kiki Smith is renowned for her contributions to both the fields of printmaking and sculpture. She has worked in variety of techniques at many workshops over a period of more than twenty-five years. Her achievements were most recently celebrated in a one-person exhibition of her prints and books at MoMA/QNS.

With rare exceptions, prints included in IPCNY's New Prints shows are for sale. IPCNY refers potential purchasers directly to the artist, publisher or gallery supplying the print. IPCNY requires no commission on sales.
