Printed Matter is thrilled to announce the opening of its first-ever satellite location in the East Village. Printed Matter / St. Marks will be located in the lobby space of the new home of the non-profit contemporary arts institution Swiss Institute. The space will provide 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 artists books and publications that reflect the breadth of Printed Matter’s inventory and mission, this new location will include independently published bookworks, zines, rare and historical material, along with a selection of artist-made multiples, prints, and posters. Printed Matter / St. Marks will also represent Swiss Institute’s publishing imprint and feature publications related to current SI exhibitions and programs. The new Printed Matter outpost will be home to a robust program of public events, including artists’ readings and talks, public conversations, panel discussions, and performances. Printed Matter / St. Marks will act 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 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.
