(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 BradfordCecily BrownGlenn BrownEnrique 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. 

Originally organized for presentation in IPCNY’s exhibition space, this digital exhibition includes dynamic visuals, didactic text, artist quotes, and audio recordings of commentary by Jennifer Farrell, Associate Curator, Department of Drawings and Prints at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. “While COVID-19 has temporarily closed our space in Chelsea,” says Director Judy Hecker, “we continue our robust curatorial program through online presentations that provide expanded access.”
