Print & Friends Icelandic Printmaking Workshop at IPCNY

What's the value of art?  On Saturday, April 15, 1 - 5pm, IPCNY will host Print & Friends Unltd., an interactive drop-in space that explores printmaking as method and social practice. Icelandic artists Leifur Ýmir Eyjólfsson and Sigurður Atli Sigurðsson, together with Paul John of Endless Editions, New York, invite the public to place print orders for pick-up. The artists will create your custom 10" print in 15 minutes, setting rates depending on the content you've chosen -- much like a pizza shop.

Come meet artists, watch them work, and "order a print", takeout-style!

Informal talks at 3pm by exhibition co-curator Ingibjörg Jóhannsdóttir and selected exhibiting artists will explore accessibility, dissemination, and sustainability relating to the medium of print.

This event is held in conjunction with Other Hats: Icelandic Printmakingon view at IPCNY from April 13 to June 10, 2017.


Thursday, June 1, 6:00–8:00pm, interview at 6:30pm

Free and open to the public but please reserve your seat!

Randy Cohen interviews Other Hats: Icelandic Printmaking exhibiting artist Hallgrímur Helgason (Icelandic, b. 1959). Hallgrímur is an artist and author based in Reykjavik, and a prime example of the multidisciplinary Icelandic art scene. His first novel, 101 Reykjavik (1996), received a film adaptation. A translation of his recent novel, Woman at 1000 Degrees (2011) will be published by Algonquin Books in 2018. He is also an inventive painter, draftsman, and printmaker.

Person Place Thing is an interview show based on this idea: people are particularly engaging when they speak not directly about themselves but about something they care about. Guests talk about one person, one place, and one thing that are important to them. The result? Surprising stories from great talkers.

This event is made possible through funds from the American Scandinavian Foundation.
