“International Print Center New York (IPCNY), New York’s flagship non-profit arts institution dedicated to advancing print as a primary artistic, cultural, and social medium, will be renamed Print Center New York upon the opening of its new home this October.
Print Center New York will inaugurate the new, ground floor space at 535 West 24th Street with Visual Record: The Materiality of Sound in Print, an exhibition investigating how artists since the 1970s have employed print-based processes to examine the relationship between sound and its visual representation. Organized by guest curator Elleree Erdos, who has since been appointed Director, Prints and Multiples at David Zwirner, the presentation includes works by 15 artists, including Terry Adkins, John Cage, Bethany Collins, Glenn Ligon, Christian Marclay, Dario Robleto, and Audra Wolowiec, among others. Visual Record will be on view through January 2023.
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 on both technical and conceptual levels. Visual Record will highlight artists whose work translates between sound and print using distinctly physical means. Across a wide range of subject matter—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.” — Print Center New York
