About the show (from IPCNY)

Big Picture Show, on view at 1285 Avenue of the Americas Art Gallery in midtown, presents thirty large-scale contemporary prints by artists originally shown at IPCNY in New Prints exhibitions. Organized three times each season, these shows form the core of IPCNY’s programming. Each of the exhibitions is selected by an independent jury sorting through thousands of submission s ranging from self-published artists to international print workshops and publishers. These shows bring to the fore new trends, talents and techniques in the field of contemporary printmaking.

The prints shown here stand out for their excellence of concept, content, and technique – as well as the sheer bravado of their scale. Virtually all mediums of printmaking are represented, from classic techniques of etching, woodcut, lithography , and s ilkscreening, to more recent innovations such as digital printing and cast paper. Together, they illustrate the creative potential unique to the medium of printmaking, and the formidable talent of artists working in the field today.

Artists in the exhibition: Polly Apfelbaum, John Baldessari, A.J. Bocchino, Ann Conner, John Robert Craft, Jeffrey Dell, Tânia Bandeira Duarte, Carroll Dunham, Kevin Frances, Beth Ganz, Bryan Nash Gill, Joanne Greenbaum, Torrie Groening, Imi Hwangbo, Mel Kendrick, Jane Kent, Joyce Kozloff, Nicola López, Martin Mazorra, S.V.
