Print Center New York is the leading non-profit exhibition space in New York dedicated to exploring the dynamic and accessible medium of print within broader artistic and cultural discourses. Print Center New York engages audiences in a welcoming environment, both onsite and online, through interdisciplinary exhibitions, innovative scholarship, educational programming, and digital resources. A 501(c)(3) institution, Print Center New York depends on foundation, government, individual support, and members’ contributions to fund its programs. Opening in early October 2022, a new, ground floor space at 535 West 24th Street designed by architect Markus Dochantschi of studioMDA will house Print Center New York’s exhibition galleries and offices, significantly expanding public access and programming capacity.

CURATOR AND GUIDING THEME
Carmen Hermo, Associate Curator for the Brooklyn Museum's Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art, will lead the pilot year of New Voices with the guiding theme:
Are we living through end times, or a new dawn? Do our technologies imagine new ways of being, or rehash old problems in new packaging? Can an artistic approach—a material or process, visual language or scale—alter meaning? Or is it the other way around?
For the pilot year of New Voices, we encourage applicants to consider their work in terms of transformation. This could reference a perspective or expectation; a social or political reality; a traditional process or medium; a sense or knowledge of the self; or artists may take this prompt in any direction. Encouraging an open-ended reading, the call will result in an exhibition that is sharpened and balanced by unexpected manifestations of this theme.
- Images should be in jpeg format, 72 dpi with longest dimension a maximum of 2,000 pixels OR less than 1MB.
- Animations or other videos may be submitted as MP4, MOV, or FLV files. Please compress video files to be a manageable size.
- Each file should be named as follows: artist's last name_first name_entry number. (For example: smith_john_01.jpg, smith_john_02.jpg, etc.)
