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. IPCNY is grateful to the artists and publishers who loaned works for “Big Picture Show”.
