PRINTFEST is a three-day fair hosted by the International Print Center New York for MFA and senior BFA students to exhibit, sell, and trade their prints during New York’s annual Print Week. PRINTFEST provides these emerging artists with a professional setting in which to show their work to a broad audience of collectors, publishers, artists, and curators visiting Chelsea galleries and the nearby IFPDA and Editions/Artists’ Book fairs. The universities’ booths are complemented by workshops and demos, as well as a panel discussion with artists and art professionals about career paths to pursue after art school. PRINTFEST 2018 will be held in memory of IPCNY founding trustee and educator Leonard Lehrer.
PRINTFEST is free and open to the public, and runs concurrent with IFPDA’s Fine Art Print Fair and the Editions/Artists’ Book Fair–all within walking distance of one another.
This year, PRINTFEST hosts twenty-two colleges and universities from New York to Michigan, Tennessee, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison, making it the largest, most diverse edition yet.
PRINTFEST features hundreds of new works for sale in a variety of mediums, formats, and price points, and is especially accessible to a broad range of collectors looking to discover and support new talent.
