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:

  • A month-long Artist Residency program, divided between IPCNY's workshop space and our partners at EFA Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop.

  • An Artist Mentorship program designed provide the artist with critical feedback, career guidance, and introductions in the field.

  • Sponsored Coursework, which funds workshops or classes of the artist's choice.

The jury or juror then selects one artist for each option based on merit, need, and
commitment to developing their print practice.
