Congratulations to gallery artist Sara Cwynar for being one of 6 artists selected for Printed Matter’s first ever Emerging Artists Publication Series, a program that allows book artists to publish works experimenting with the medium in new and exciting ways.
“Printed Matter is pleased to announce the winners of our first ever Emerging Artists Publication Series, a program that allows book artists to publish works experimenting with the medium in new and exciting ways. From more than 300 artists’ book proposals submitted by artists and collectives based in New York, the six projects selected include those by:
Clive Murphy & Aengus Woods
The artists will be working with Printed Matter and designer Garrick Gott to develop their proposed artists’ book projects, which will be published individually in a loose serialized format over the next year. In addition to having their work designed and printed, the artists will be given the opportunity to host a book launch and exhibition at our storefront in Chelsea. Congratulations to our Emerging Artists and we look forward to realizing your projects!
We were genuinely excited by the vast range of entries we received from our open call, so many of which we did not have the means to accept despite their merits. The overwhelming number applications we received is a strong indication of the need for such a program designed exclusively for book artists, as well as the growing interest in the medium itself. We hope the Emerging Artist Publication Series will become one of Printed Matter’s standard programming activities that help garner an appreciation for artists’ publications. Thank you to everyone who submitted.
Proposals were reviewed by a jury comprised of artist Tauba Auerbach, MoMA Library’s David Senior, our Consulting Design Director Garrick Gott, and the Executive Director of Printed Matter James Jenkin. The Emerging Artists Publication Series is made possible by the support of the Jerome Foundation.”
