Print Center New York presents its inaugural exhibition, Visual Record: The Materiality of Sound in Print, Print Center New York opens to the public on Saturday, October 8.
Visual Record, organized by guest curator Elleree Erdos, who was appointed last year as Director of Prints & Editions at David Zwirner has curated an exhibition rooted in the traditions of both sound and print. The works in Visual Record reflect an increasing interest in how prints relate to and inform broader multimedia practices, highlighting artists whose work translates between sound and print using distinctly physical means. Across a wide range of subjects—from the rhythms of jazz and American nostalgia to the sound of silence and the encoding of race in aural matter—the works demonstrate how the idea of the “record” is bolstered by innovative technical and conceptual approaches to printmaking. The show features work by 15 world renowned artists including Terry Adkins, John Cage, Bethany Collins, Glenn Ligon, Christian Marclay, Dario Robleto, and Audra Wolowiec, among others.
Print Center New York (formerly International Print Center New York or IPCNY) launches its brand-new, ground-level space in a historic 6-story building completed in 1903 for use as a horse stable, doubling the scale of Print Center New York’s previous space. Created by architect Markus Dochantschi of studioMDA, the design features a main interior space, the Jordan Schnitzer Gallery, that encourages flexible use for exhibition, artist programs, performances, and receptions. Print Center New York opens to the public on Saturday, October 8.
