Give Me Space: New Prints 2020/Summer (Virtual Exhibition)

Give Me Space: New Prints 2020/Summer is an online exhibition featuring 54 new works selected by Chitra Ganesh. Chosen from prints and print-based work created over the last year and submitted by more than 1,000 artists, the exhibition presents a diverse group of 41 artists and “reflects the radical and unprecedented shifts of space, both physical and psychic, that are being urgently enacted by our current political moment,” says Ganesh. Organized in the context of the COVID-19 crisis, the project “speaks to how the global pandemic and the stark inequalities it has laid bare have given way to a radical restructuring of how bodies exist in public space,” Ganesh continues. The exhibition takes its title from Farah Mohammad’s work in Give Me Space.

Organized for the digital format while IPCNY’s exhibition space remains temporarily closed, the exhibition is the latest and first fully-online presentation of IPCNY's long-standing New Prints Program, which supports artists from a wide range of backgrounds and reflects artistic production of the moment. Users of the website can listen to Ganesh's powerful statement, read texts by the 41 artists, and navigate the exhibition's themes: PsychoGeographies, Points of Contact, New Cosmologies, Environment and Justice, and A Story in Fragments.

Artists selected for the exhibition will also be invited to apply for IPCNY's New Prints Artist Development Program consisting of three opportunities: an artist residency, artist mentorship program, and sponsored coursework.
