“The opportunity to jury an exhibition of contemporary artwork is normally welcomed as a chance to see the latest work being done - both by well-known artists and also those who are not necessarily represented at galleries or major printshops. It is an occasion that enables one to get a "democratic" sense for what is being done in the field because anyone can submit slides to juried exhibitions. And so, when the jury for this IPCNY exhibition convened on a hot July day in New York, we were shown some four hundred slides and photographs of work by well over one hundred artists.' A number of these artists were familiar faces, but many were not. Our goal was to select the best art being shown to us, regardless of topic or medium. We considered choosing a thematic exhibition but ultimately decided that would force the elimination of some works which we felt deserved to be included in the final group. After a process of viewing, culling out some work, and viewing again, all with lively discussion, a decision was made; one that we hope will present examples of some (but certainly not all) of the more provocative printmaking done in 2002.”
