The acclaimed international art fair, long a meeting place for knowledgeable curators and connoisseurs, blossoms this year with more new editions than ever and a stunning array of old master, modern and contemporary works that are among the highest achievements in this art form. While rare impressions from artists such as Rembrandt, Cassatt, Picasso, and Lichtenstein will command five and six figure prices, there will be a multitude of choices in the affordable range for collectors seeking blue chip names and newly emergent artists.

Exhibitors at the Fair are all members of the International Fine Print Dealers Association, an organization of prestigious galleries, contemporary print publishers, and distinguished private dealers united by their expertise in this medium.

The juxtaposition of many periods and movements throughout the Fair illustrates the enduring commitment of artists to printmaking as part of their artistic practice. Exhibitors at the Fair also include the IFPDAs contemporary print publishers who work with internationally renowned artists to produce ambitious new projects. These new projects are often astonishingly complex and show how contemporary artists are pushing the boundaries of the medium with new and innovative methods. This year, collectors will have a first look at new prints by Ida Applebroog, John Baldessari, Jonathan Borofsky, Richard Serra, Sanford Biggers, Chuck Close, Suzanne Caporael, Enrique Chagoya, Isca Greenfield- Sanders, Gordon Cheung, Ian Davenport, Julian Opie, Beatriz Milhazes, Los Carpinteros, Alex Katz, Vik Muniz, Tara Donovan, Carroll Dunham, Polly Apfelbaum, James Siena, Ed Ruscha, Kiki Smith, Richard Tuttle, Ana Maria Pacheco, Kristian Krokfors, and Manolo Valdés.

The Fair will open with a Preview Party to benefit the Department of Prints and Illustrated Books of The Museum of Modern Art. This years Preview is expected to be particularly festive with hours extended to 9:30 pm and a new Friends ticket introduced. Those purchasing tickets at the Benefactor level will receive this year’s benefit print, a striking color screenprint, created by British artist Julian Opie (subject to limited availability). Tickets are required for this event and can be purchased online at www.moma.org/events/special

The Fairs new exhibition program provides a platform for the IFPDAs next generation of talented gallerists. Curated by Jeffrey Lee of IFPDA member Mary Ryan Gallery, the first show in this new program will hang in the Fairs Café in the exhibitors hall. Entitled “Tête à Tête,” Mr. Lees exhibition connects the recent trend towards figurative work in contemporary art with the deeply rooted tradition of portraiture in the history of art.

The Tiffany Room, Admission: free
