Mapping Narratives: New Prints 2021/Winter

Selected by Black Women of Print (LaToya Hobbs, Jennifer Mack-Watkins, Angela Pilgrim, Stephanie Santana, and Tanekeya Word), this in-person and online exhibition features new works by 40 artists representing 15 states and 9 countries. This exhibition explores “the varied ways printmakers and book artists exist in space and how they associate meaning, via their lived experiences, to inform place,” said Tanekeya Word, founder of Black Women of Print. In conjunction with the exhibition, IPCNY will host online public programs including two artist talks and a conversation with Black Women of Print. Free and open to the public on Zoom. More information coming soon.

Mapping Narratives: New Prints 2021/Winter is the 63rd presentation of IPCNY's New Prints Program, and will be on view January 28–April 3, 2021. Established in 2000, the New Prints Program is a biannual, juried open call for prints and print-based work created in the preceding twelve months. Artists selected for the exhibition will also be invited to apply for IPCNY's New Prints Artist Development Program consisting of three opportunities: artist residencies, mentorships, and sponsored coursework.

About the Jury
Black Women of Print (BWoP) was founded in October 2018 by Tanekeya Word, a Black woman, visual artist, art educator, scholar and fine art printmaker who resides in Milwaukee, WI. Word was interested in creating an equitable safe place for Black women printmakers who were underrepresented in the discipline of printmaking, a space that is eulogized as democratic. Black Women of Print is an African diaspora centered platform, a digital homeplace for independent, mid-career and established skill level Black women printmakers. The organization serves as a place to support and promote the visibility of Black women printmakers and as a professional directory of Black women printmakers who practice within the field.
