INTERNATIONAL PRINT CENTER NEW YORK
NEW PRINTS 2020/SUMMER
SELECTED BY CHITRA GANESH
Artist Chitra Ganesh selected Give Me Space, the latest presentation of IPCNY's long-standing New Prints Program, which supports artists from a wide range of backgrounds and reflects artistic production today and over the last year. We invite you to listen to (or read) Ganesh’s powerful statement on her selections and on the radical and unprecedented shifts of space—both physical and psychic—enacted in our current political moment of spiraling crises of public health and systemic racism.
Ganesh selected 54 works from submissions by over 1,000 artists, and identified five overlapping themes that serve as a framework for viewing. As you scroll down to navigate the site, explore these themes and their meanings: PsychoGeographies, Points of Contact, New Cosmologies, Environment and Justice, and A Story in Fragments.

International Print Center New York is New York’s flagship non-profit arts institution dedicated to the innovative presentation of prints by emerging, established, national, and international artists. Founded in 2000, IPCNY is a vibrant hub and exhibition space located in New York’s Chelsea gallery district (temporarily closed due to the pandemic). Our artist-centered approach engages the medium in all its varied potential, and includes guest-curated exhibitions that present dynamic, new scholarship along with the New Prints Program. A 501(c)(3) institution, IPCNY depends on foundation, government, individual support, and members’ contributions to fund its programs.
New Prints is supported in part by public funds from the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, and by the Areté Foundation. Support for all programs and exhibitions at IPCNY is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and by foundations including: Milton & Sally Avery Arts Foundation, Inc., Deborah Loeb Brice Foundation, Horace W. Goldsmith Foundation, The Jockey Hollow Foundation, PECO Foundation, Travelers Foundation, and the NYC COVID-19 Response and Impact Fund from the New York Community Trust, along with major individual support.
