Gift Island

December 12, 2019 - January 4, 2020

Printed Matter is excited to present our annual selection of artist made gifts! Visit our island getaway of multiples, posters, editions and books to shop for friends, family, and yourself this holiday season while simultaneously supporting artists and the arts non-profit that supports them.

Celebrate with us on December 18th from 5-8PM with a reception and performance by Taraka. Join the facebook event here!

Send a holiday message this year with Becky Howland’s Cootie Catcher Christmas Card and Yiran Guo’s smiling cans, or wax poetic between Anna Campbell’s foil stamped guitar pick Plectrum: After Anne Carson, After Sappho, which presents a fragment of Anne Carson’s translation of Sappho’s Fragment 31, also known as the Poem of Jealousy and Anyse Ducharme’s Glitch Necklaces that are the result of a language code transformed into an image code and then 3D printed to represent the statement I’ve swear i’ve followed the instruction but my heart can’t close. If you want to get your hands dirty, create and subsequently destroy your own artistic institution with John Marriott’s Make Your Own Burnable Contemporary Art Gallery or take a stab at gifting Maggie Dunlap’s folding hunting knife with an engraved handle that reads What Doesn’t Kill Me Might Make Me Kill You. Browse our expanded presentation of prints by Secret Riso Club, Slava Mogutin, Erik Hanson, Soft City Press, and Sigrid Calon and ceremoniously reveal your gift by unrolling C.F.’s RAMS 1-44 and Pro-Driverreceipt zines, Heidi Cody’s Ads on TP (a full 2-Ply roll printed in black with “throw-away” advertisements) or Marilyn Minter’s Bed Blueprint. Whether you are looking specifically for a manatee shaped USB Drive (by Christie Rupp) or a new door sign for your office that reads Please Department (by Ethan Crensen), you won’t be left stranded.
