Printed Matter is thrilled to have a new home in the East Village on the corner of St Marks Place and 2nd Avenue. Printed Matter / St. Marks is housed on the first floor of the non-profit contemporary arts institution Swiss Institute.

This boutique space provides an opportunity for Printed Matter to advance its mission to distribute and promote artists’ books to a broader audience in the diverse, culturally rich, and highly-trafficked East Village neighborhood. Brimming with publications that reflect Printed Matter’s inventory and mission, the St Marks shop includes independently published bookworks, zines, rare and historical material, along with a small selection of artist-made multiples, prints, and posters. Printed Matter / St. Marks also represents Swiss Institute’s publishing imprint and feature publications related to current SI exhibitions and programs.

Printed Matter / St Marks is home to a robust program of public events, including artists’ readings and talks, panel discussions, and performances. This smaller outpost of Printed Matter acts as a springboard, launching new community outreach initiatives including educational programs that will reach diverse audiences in the East Village, Chinatown, and the Lower East Side by presenting the history of artists’ books and book-making workshops.

Printed Matter / St. Marks is open to the public on the ground floor of the contemporary art nonprofit Swiss Institute’s space at 38 St. Marks Pl, on the corner of 2nd Avenue and St. Marks Pl.
