New Prints 2013/Winter consists of etchings, lithographs, installations, books and sculptures, and other manifestations of print processes.  Highlights include: William Skerritt’s Catskill Layer Cake,  a distillation of a body of work drawn from drawing, geology and map-making; a portfolio of prints by SP Weather Station, a Queens-based interdisciplinary project that collects weather data and organizes weather-related publications. Nathan Meltz’s floor installation, Are you Ready for the Great Atomic Power? Part 6, a looming pile of silkscreen cut-outs, portrays nightmarish industrial creations in newly-imagined states of being. Serena Perrone’s long and meandering piece incorporates drawing, photolithography and screenprint, blurring the line between fact and fiction, real and imagined. Miguel Aragon’s print, Lo Encontraron en la Habitacion-1, is drawn from manipulated photographs from news media that depict crude and raw forensic evidence. 


The exhibition fosters a dialogue between the representational and surreal, political and imaginative, three-dimensional and transparent. It includes prints of all shapes, sizes, colors, lengths and dimensions. It is a testament to the vivacity and creativity of printmaking throughout the world. Along with many local artists, there are artists from all over the world – including Mexico, England and Spain.  


New Prints 2013/Winter will travel to Art League Houston from June 21, 2013 – August 2, 2013.  All New Prints shows are available for touring through IPCNY’s Touring Program. For additional information, please contact our Exhibitions Coordinator, Lotte Marie Allen, at
