MISSION

International Print Center New York (IPCNY) is New York’s flagship non-profit arts institution dedicated to the innovative presentation of prints by emerging, established, national, and international artists. Founded in 2000, the print center is a vibrant hub and exhibition space located in New York’s Chelsea gallery district. IPCNY’s artist-centered approach engages the medium in all its varied potential, and includes guest-curated exhibitions that present dynamic, new scholarship as well as biannual New Prints open calls for work created in the last twelve months. A lively array of public programs engages audiences more deeply with the works on display. A 501(c)(3) institution, IPCNY depends on foundation, government, and individual support, as well as members’ contributions to fund its programs.

history

IPCNY was chartered by the Board of Regents of New York State in 1995 under the visionary leadership of Founding Director, Anne Coffin. Its first full season of activities was launched in 2000 with Hard Pressed: 600 Years of Prints and Process, our Inaugural Exhibition at AXA Gallery in midtown. That same fall, IPCNY opened its own exhibition space in Chelsea with a juried show of contemporary prints, the first of more than 50 New Prints exhibitions which have been recognized by funders including the National Endowment for the Arts, New York State Council on the Arts, NYC Department of Cultural Affairs, the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Foundation for Contemporary Arts, and Areté Foundation. In 2010, IPCNY moved to a larger space, where we have shown new work by over 1,600 artists, and developed over 30 curated exhibitions. In 2007, IPCNY added a Spring Benefit Dinner to its fundraising initiatives, and we have honored three distinguished members of the printmaking community every year.

Having recently celebrated its 15th anniversary and, in 2016, hired its second Director, Judy Hecker from The Museum of Modern Art, New York, Department of Drawings & Prints, IPCNY has entered an exciting next chapter. The vision for that chapter builds on IPCNY’s core mission, deepening its artist-­centered approach, exploring the role of prints within broader artistic and cultural practice, and re-engaging the international artistic community.
