(Re)Print: Five Projects investigates the dynamic relationship between the history of reproduction and contemporary print practice. For centuries, print has been instrumental in the replication and dissemination of artworks and ideas, allowing them to travel and reach new audiences. Artists throughout history have looked to (and worked from) these images, often encountered through printed reproduction. This is no less true today.
(Re)Print brings into dialogue the prints of five contemporary artists—Mark Bradford, Cecily Brown, Glenn Brown, Enrique Chagoya, and Lynette Yiadom-Boakye—and the printed source material they reference. These artists each use a distinct approach to processing and responding to familiar imagery. They quote art historical masters, deconstruct everyday visual material, and shake loose images of their conventional meanings. Appropriating, obscuring, recasting, inventing—all inspire new ways of thinking about how images shape our histories, cultures, and beliefs.
(Re)Print was originally developed for IPCNY’s exhibition space in New York, and has been reimagined here for an online format that will continue to evolve. New content and educational resources will be added on an ongoing basis, and there are opportunities throughout the digital exhibition for you to send us questions, connections, and thoughts that we’ll share and respond to on social media.
