New Prints 2003/Autumn
International Print Center New York announces the tenth presentation of its New Prints Program from Tuesday, November 4, 2003 through Tuesday, January 6, 2004 in its gallery at 526 West 26th Street, Room 824, in Chelsea. New Prints 2003/Autumn is one of a series of juried exhibitions organized four times each season by IPCNY presenting current prints by artists at all stages of their careers.
With New Prints 2003/Autumn, IPCNY continues its rotating presentations of contemporary artists’ prints, establishing an ongoing exhibition venue for new work and a central source of information about artists working in the medium of printmaking. For New Prints 2003/Autumn, the Selections Committee (which changes with each New Prints exhibition) was comprised of the following members: Brooke Alexander, publisher; Dudley Del Balso, artists’ representative and Trustee, IPCNY; Carin Kuoni, independent curator; Liliana Porter, artist and professor, Queens College, New York City; Suzanne Randolph, fine art advisor; and Joseph Ruzicka, head of the Association of Art Museum Curators, New York City. Ms. Kuoni also contributed the curatorial essay for the exhibition. Sandra Lang continues in her role as consultant to the program.
Multi-faceted, animated, and free in its exploration of various printmaking mediums, New Prints 2003/Autumn includes a relief print Oko Ene’ Ba nse by R. G. Brown shown here assembled as a canoe hung from the gallery ceiling; a pair of silkscreened porcelain plates by Stephanie Dotson whose lithograph and silkscreen Things Willing More than Other Things is also on view; a portfolio by Keiko Hara composed of twelve ukiyo-e woodblock prints with stencil and collage; and a wall-sized mixed-media piece Mythologies by Jacquie Strycker, a young San Francisco artist.
IPCNY received some 800 submissions for New Prints 2003/Autumn, all released within the past year. The committee selected fifty-six prints (including artists’ books and printed objects), representing the work of thirty-four artists and drawn from a wide range of sources. In addition to prints published by the artists themselves, work from the following publishers is included: Baron/Boisanté Editions, Dieu Donné Papermill, Har-El Printers and Publishers, Jaffa, Israel; Harlan & Weaver, Inc.; Lower East Side Printshop; Mixographia, Los Angeles; MS Editions, New York City; Shark’s Ink, Lyons, CO., Tamarind Institute, Albuquerqe, NM; and Tandem Press, Madison, WI. Works from individual artists came from locations across the United States, from the surroundings of New York City and the East Coast, to the Midwest, Arizona, California, and Walla Walla, Washington.
