IPCNY’s New Prints Program was created in 2000 as a platform for artists from a wide range of backgrounds working in the medium of print. The biannual open-call exhibitions feature prints in a variety of formats and techniques produced in the preceding twelve months. Juried by stakeholders in the field, the resulting exhibitions offer snapshots of what artists are contending with in the moment, leading a sense of immediacy to each presentation.

NEW PRINTS Artist Development Program

In 2017, IPCNY expanded the New Prints open-call exhibition series by offering each cohort of exhibiting artists further opportunities to receive further training, guidance, and exposure.

After each New Prints exhibition is selected by the jury or juror, the exhibiting artists are invited to apply for the three components of New Prints Artist Development Program:

The jury or juror then selects six artists–two Artists-in-Residence, one Mentorship honoree, and three Sponsored Coursework honorees–based on merit, need, and commitment to developing their print practice.
