Co-curated by Roberta Waddell and Samantha Rippner, in consultation with Luther Davis, Pulled In Brooklyn was the first in-depth exploration of the vibrant network of artists, printers, and workshops that has developed and flourished in Brooklyn since the early 1990s. This monumental exhibition was also IPCNY’s first to occupy two adjacent spaces, more than doubling the scale of our previous presentations. The archived webpage features videos at several of the printshops along with close looks at the shops through a digital directory.

Edge of Visibility, curated in conjunction with the September-October issue of the journal Art in Print by its editor-in-chief Susan Tallman, focuses on low-visibility strategies in printmaking.  With over forty works spanning the 17th century to the present, the exhibition features laborious microengravings and subtle watermarks to evanescent images printed with UV-reactive inks.

Artists: Fiona Banner, Barbara Bloom, Jacques Callot, Megan Foster, Levi David van Gelder, Samuel Levi Jones, William Kentridge, Matthew Kenyon & Douglas Easterly, Glenn Ligon, Christian Marclay, Boris Margo, Kerry James Marshall, Chris Ofili, Philippe Parreno, William Pratt, Johann Michael Püchler, Walid Raad, Ad Reinhardt, Art Spiegelman & Françoise Mouly, Timorous Beasties (Alistair McAuley & Paul Simmons), and Susan York.

Susan Tallman’s Introductory Text:

Art is meant to be looked at. And yet for centuries artists have made art that is literally hard to see—too small, too dark, too intricate, too ephemeral. 

They have done so for many reasons: to hide things from prying eyes, or to reward those who stay; to tease the viewer by hinting, withholding and revealing in turns; to point out how certain things and people pass unnoticed; to call attention to what hovers just out of sight. As a remedy and a pleasure, they invite us to slow down and look. 

The twenty-four artists in this exhibition span four centuries, from the 17th to the present. They have employed microcalligraphy and phosphorescent pigments, watermarks and inkless printing, opalescence and reflectivity. They have made pictures about ghosts, monsters, Blackness, whiteness, and the ultimate mysteries of art, sex and God. 

These are covert pictures. In most cases our first impressions will be wrong, and rightly so. Viewing is at the heart of this exercise—what it means to see, physically, metaphysically, socially and politically. 

The edge of visibility is an uncertain place. It takes time to get the picture. In that sense, it is exactly like the world itself.

Paper/Print: American Hand Papermaking, 1960s to Today, traces the development of hand papermaking as an artistic medium in the United States, both in conjunction with printmaking and in its own right, with over 65 other artists who have made outstanding work in the medium, from the 1960s to today. Representing a multitude of artistic disciplines, the works demonstrate how artists, papermakers, and publishers have together redefined and expanded the inherent creative possibilities of the papermaking process. 

This focused exhibition is the first to trace the American hand-papermaking revolution as an outgrowth of the printmaking renaissance. It brings together the best, along with some of the rarest and lesser known examples, of two-dimensional works, artist books, and cast-paper multiples to spotlight the closely intertwined American stories of printmaking and papermaking in the contemporary period. Spanning more than fifty years, the exhibition will examine the transformation of paper from its traditional role as a substrate for prints to an active partner—and stand-alone medium—in the creation of editions and unique works by such groundbreaking artists of the 20th and 21st century as Mel Bochner, Lynda Benglis, Chakaia Booker, Lesley Dill, Leonardo Drew, David Hockney, Louise Nevelson, Robert Rauschenberg, and Richard Tuttle, to name just a few.

The exhibition was accompanied by an extensive brochure published by IPCNY, featuring an essay by curators Susan Gosin and Mina Takahashi and a bibliography providing further historical context for the material on view.

Artists: Polly Apfelbaum, Laura Anderson Barbata, Laurence Barker, Barbara Beisinghoff, Lynda Benglis, Kim Berman, Mei-mei Berssenbrugge, Robert Blackburn, Mel Bochner, Chakaia Booker, Louise Bourgeois, Mary Callery, Drew Cameron, Chuck Close, Will Cotton, E.V.

Russian Revolution: A Contested Legacy, commemorating the centennial of the 1917 Russian Revolution, looks beyond the canon of the Russian avant-garde to focus on three avenues of individual freedoms sought by the fledgling socialist society: the equality and emancipation of women; internationalism, including racial equality and the rights of ethnic minorities in Russia, especially Jews; and sexual and gay liberation.


By placing a selection of historical printed works by key Russian avant-garde artists of the 1920s and 1930s, including such well-known names as Gustav KlucisEl Lissitzky, and Elizaveta Ignatovich, in dialogue with contemporary works by Russian-born, New York-based artists Yevgeniy Fiks and Anton Ginzburg, the exhibition evaluates these often-obscured goals of the Revolution and addresses their continued urgency today – in Russia, the United States, and elsewhere. 

The exhibition was accompanied by an extensive brochure designed by Anton Ginzburg and published by IPCNY, featuring an essay by curator Masha Chlenova as well as an illustrated chronology by Chlenova and Yevgeniy Fiks and a bibliography providing further historical context for the material on view.

Other Hats: Icelandic Printmaking

Other Hats Postcard_Page_1.jpg

On view: April 13 - June 10, 2017
Curated by Ingibjörg Jóhannsdóttir and Pari Stave 

Open press release (pdf)
Open checklist (pdf)

Other Hats: Icelandic Printmaking showcases the breadth of printmaking by Icelandic artists. Featuring screenprints, etchings, digital work, artist’s books, and 3D prints, among other works, by over twenty intergenerational Icelandic artists, the exhibition also includes prints by select international artists who have spent enough time in Iceland to have absorbed the ethos of the country. 

The exhibition’s title has two meanings: first, printmaking is often a practice done in parallel with other media and disciplines, and second, Iceland’s uniquely small population often prompts people to hold two or more careers in parallel. Exhibiting artists Magnús Þór Jónsson (Megas), one of Iceland’s most renowned songwriters; Hallgrímur Helgason, one of the country’s celebrated authors; and Hrafnhildur Arnardóttir, also known as Shoplifter, whose work in fashion design has included collaborations with Björk, are just three striking examples of this multidisciplinary approach. One of Björk’s artist’s books, Um Úrnat frá Bjork (1984), will also be on view.

Artists are: Arnar Herbertsson, Birgir Andrésson, Björk Guðmundsdóttir, Dieter Roth, Eygló Harðardóttir, Georg Guðni, Guðjón Ketilsson, Hallgrímur Helgason, Helgi Þorgils Friðjónsson, Hrafnhildur Arnardóttir, Hrafnkell Sigurðsson, Katrín Sigurðardóttir, Kristján Daviðsson, Leifur Ýmir Eyjólfsson, Magnús Þór Jónsson (Megas), Per Kirkeby, Roni Horn, Sara Riel, Rúna Þorkelsdóttir, Rúrí, Sigurður Árni Sigurðsson, Sigurður Atli Sigurðsson, Sigurður Guðmundsson, Sólveig Aðalsteinsdóttir, Þóra Sigurðardóttir, and Valgerður Guðlaugsdóttir.

Suspended Animation highlights the experimental nature of animation with works that explore historical, fictional, and performative subjects through motion, sound and stillness. With moving images and works on paper displayed side-by-side, this rich viewing experience provides a window into the artist’s creative process and the intrinsic qualities of printmaking that connect with time-based works. This includes printmaking’s long-established serial structure; its capacity for the sequential progression of image development; and the reproduction and repetition of images. The exhibition demonstrates how artists engage with myriad techniques and strategies of printmaking as an extension of drawing practice. This ranges from the hand-etched and printed line, to collages of woodcut and laser-cut elements, to silkscreen and digital prints.

Moving Images: Printmaking & Animation


On view: September 24 - November 10, 2015
Curated by: Lotte Allen

Moving Images explores the relationship between printmaking and the moving image. Organized by Lotte Allen. Artists include Kakyoung Lee, Nicola López, Kiki Smith, Justin Sanz, Rob Swainston and Mark Webber.

Printmaking and animation are rooted in similar historical traditions – and both use the multiple in various ways. Where multiples within the context of printmaking have always been associated with social change and the dissemination of information, multiples are used to create an actual animation, frame for frame. In the case of using prints to create a stop-motion animation, the medium of printmaking lends itself to creating moving images, where each print represents a frame in the animation’s narrative. While contemporary animation is most often associated with computer graphics and drawing, printmaking is used more frequently to create animations by artists at all stages of their careers.

Over forty works by twelve artists will be included with techniques ranging from lithography, etching, silkscreen, linocut and monoprint, to three-dimensional multi-media constructions. Affiliations of the artists include Mohawk, Seneca, Navajo, Flathead/Salish, Chiricahua Apache, Cree, Plains Cultures, Colville Confederate Tribes and Wiyot.

“Weaving Past into Present” has been organized in collaboration with Sarah Diver, Project Coordinator, who is contributing the curatorial essay for the exhibition. Ms. Diver writes: “This exhibition focuses on the work of current indigenous printmakers who utilize…history as a visual language…Grounding their work in the images, textures, and experiences of the colonial era, artists layer old and new, past and present to explore how the attitudes which shaped 19th-century policies and practices continue to resonate in popular culture today.”

Artists included in the exhibition are: Lynne Allen, Rick Bartow, Joe Feddersen, John Hitchcock, Brad Kahlhamer, Jason Lujan, Alan Michelson, Jaune Quick-to-See Smith, Jewel Shaw, Marie Watt, Emmi Whitehorse, and Melanie Yazzie.

Workshops represented are Crow’s Shadow Press (OR); Hybrid Press (WI); LeRoy Nieman Center for Print Studies (NY); Sitka Center for Art and Ecology (OR); Tamarind Institute (NM); and Vermillion Editions Limited (TX).

IPCNY is grateful to the artists, publishers, and to the Collection of Jordan D. Schnitzer for so generously lending works to this exhibition.
