I participated in "Edging Forward: New Prints 2018/Winter" January 11-March 28, 2018"

International Print Centre New York City.

Curated by Miguel A. Aragón, Natasha Becker, Pepe Coronado, Bernard Lumpkin, Jennifer Melby and Mark Waskow.

International Print Center New York (IPCNY) announces the fifty-seventh presentation of its New Prints Program, a biannual, juried open call for prints and print-based work created in the preceding twelve months. Titled Edging Forward, the exhibition was selected from a record 1,313 applicants, who submitted work from all 50 states as well as Europe, Asia, South America, and Africa. Countries represented in the exhibition include India, the Netherlands, South Africa, and Ukraine, among others.

A panel of jurors composed of print experts and stakeholders in contemporary art pored over the submissions, and their choices reflect the highly experimental nature of contemporary printmaking, which is wide-ranging in both its content and techniques. Masterful lithographs, etchings, and relief prints are deployed in deeply felt personal narratives, but above all, the artists on view in Edging Forward are tenacious explorers, testing the limits of their field one work at a time. Among the most imaginative formats on view are Eszter Sziksz’s three-dimensional print on ice, which will melt during the opening reception and be shown as a video for the remainder of the exhibition, andKristina Davis’s stenciled lotion print, in which the viscous material complements her chosensubject, an uncomfortable quote from Kurt Vonnegut’s 1973 novel Breakfast of Champions.

The New Prints Program is singular in its role as a democratic forum, displaying the work of emerging artists alongside more established names in the field. In this exhibition, IPCNY is pleased to welcome back Derrick Adams, who has previously exhibited work in the gallery as part of its fall 2016 guest- curated exhibition, Black Pulp!, and to show a new multimedia print by Alison Saar, whose work has been shown at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Studio Museum in Harlem, and the National Museum of Women in the Arts, as well as earlier New Prints exhibitions.
