Russian Revolution: A Contested Legacy

Postcard designed by Anton Ginzburg

Curated by Masha Chlenova
On view: October 12 – December 16, 2017

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 

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: Moving Images in Print


On view: April 7 - June 12, 2016
Curated by: Lotte Marie Allen

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.

Weaving Past into Present: Experiments in Contemporary Native American Printmaking


On view: September 24 - November 10, 2015
Organized by: Sarah Diver

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.

True Monotypes


On view: March 26 - May 30, 2015
Curated by: Janice C. Oresman

The curator writes, “Artists find monotypes exciting to make for many reasons. One is the lushness of the medium used. Another is the element of chance that may or may not please them in the printing process such as the softening of outlines, and pooling or bleeding of colors… Collectors seek out monotypes for their sheer beauty as well as for their uniqueness.”

Artist: Rita Ackermann, Chuck Arnoldi, Romare Bearden, Cecily Brown, Gregory Crane, Paul DeRuvo, Valentina DuBasky, Joellyn Duesberry, Carroll Dunham, Mary Frank, Lawrence Gipe, Sue Heatley, Jasper Johns, Jane Kent, Joyce Kozloff, Maya Lin, Judith Linhares, Eddie Martinez, Michael Mazur, Kate McCrickard, James Nares, Anne Neely, John Newman, Elizabeth Peyton, Matt Phillips, Susan Rothenberg, Sara Sanders, Dana Schutz, Richard Segalman, Stuart Shils, Steven Sorman, David Storey, Philip Taaffe, Donald Traver, Mary Jo Vath, Chuck Webster, William Weege, Christopher Wool, and Lisa Yuskavage.

TOUR: Big Picture Show

1285_BigPictureShow_Brochure (1).jpg

On view: September 8 - December 5, 2014

“Big Picture Show” presents thirty large-scale contemporary prints on view at 1285 Avenue of the Americas Art Gallery (NY) by artists originally shown at IPCNY in New Prints exhibitions. Organized three times each season, these shows form the core of IPCNY’s programming. Each of the exhibitions is selected by an independent jury sorting through thousands of submissions ranging from self-published artists to international print workshops and publishers. These shows bring to the fore new trends, talents and techniques in the field of contemporary printmaking.

The prints shown here stand out for their excellence of concept, content, and technique—as well as the sheer bravado of their scale. Virtually all mediums of printmaking are represented, from classic techniques of etching, woodcut, lithography, and silkscreen, to more recent innovations such as digital printing and cast paper. Together, they illustrate the creative potential unique to the medium of printmaking, and the formidable talent of artists working in the field today.

“Big Picture Show” is organized by International Print Center New York. The exhibition is sponsored by 1285 Avenue of the Americas Art Gallery as a community-based public service in partnership with 1285 Avenue of the Americas and Jones Lang LaSalle. A special thanks to Colin Thomson, director of 1285 Avenue of the Americas Art Gallery, and Linda Florio of Florio Design.
