Virtual E/AB: LeRoy Neiman Center for Print Studies

However disappointing, the cancellation of this year’s Editions/Artists’ Books Fair may seem trivial in the broader context of the genuine tragedies caused by superstorm Sandy. But the cancellation represents a tremendous loss for the fair’s exhibitors, who work toward this event all year, and may depend on its success. Printeresting has offered E/AB participants an online platform to showcase new editions. We can’t make up for the loss of the fair, but we hope that our readers will appreciate these great projects (and that you might consider supporting these publishers during a difficult time).

Editions from THE LEROY NEIMAN CENTER FOR PRINT STUDIES in New York:

MARK DION
For his second project, Hunting Standards, Mark Dion collaborated with Nathan Catlin (MFA ’12) to create a portfolio of four banner-like images that illustrate both the empathy and irony of hunting. Through The Fox, The Boar, The Deer, and The Rabbit, he provides a visual commentary that addresses “hunting as a cultural practice that is rich in traditions, passionately pursued and highly controversial.”

4 screenprints on felt in a paper folio, 16 x 20″

JASPER JOHNS
The LeRoy Neiman Center for Print Studies was given the gracious opportunity to edition Untitled, 2012. This beautiful print initiated in Jasper Johns’ Low Road Studio with Master Printer John Lund. Untitled is an intaglio print with aquatint and spit-bite, made from three plates and ten colors. The print was editioned by Neiman Center Master Printer Doug Bennett in an edition of 30. It is a beautifully intimate work with visual references to some of the artist’s earlier paintings, Perilous Night, 1982 and According to What?, 1964, as well as the more recent Untitled, 2011 published by Universal Limited Art Editions.
