International Print Center New York (IPCNY) 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, the print center is a vibrant hub and exhibition space located in New York’s Chelsea gallery district. IPCNY’s artist-centered approach engages the medium in all its varied potential, and includes guest-curated exhibitions that present dynamic, new scholarship as well as biannual New Prints open calls for work created in the preceding twelve months. A lively array of public programs engages audiences more deeply with the works on display. A 501(c)(3) institution, IPCNY depends on foundation, government, and individual support, as well as members’ contributions to fund its programs.

Chitra Ganesh is a Brooklyn-based artist whose practice brings to light narrative representations of femininity, sexuality, and power typically absent from canons of literature, history, and art. Her drawings, prints, comics, installations, and video combine  and subvert Hindu and Buddhist mythology, South-Asian pictorial forms, 19th century European portraiture and fairytales, and contemporary visual culture. Ganesh created her first published prints at the Brodsky Center in 2009 and has continued to pursue the medium, most recently in “Sultana’s Dream” a portfolio of 27 linocuts at Durham Press. Ganesh graduated from Brown University with a BA in Comparative Literature and Art-Semiotics, and received her MFA from Columbia University. Her is widely recognized in South Asia, and has been exhibited internationally and in New York, including solo presentations at The Warhol Museum, PS1/ MoMA, the Brooklyn Museum, and most recently at the Rubin Museum and The Kitchen. She has been selected for the Leslie Lohman Museums Queer Power Façade Commission, which will be unveiled in June 2020.
