Printed Matter has just announced the winners of their first Emerging Artists Publication Series, a program that "allows book artists to publish works experimenting with the medium in new and exciting ways." More than 300 artists' book proposals were submitted by NYC-based artists, and the six winners are:
Anne Callahan (Youngstown, OH)
Sara Cwynar (Vancouver)
Dawn Kim (Brooklyn)
Clive Murphy & Aengus Woods (Ireland)
Chris Nosenzo (Brooklyn)
Max Stolkin (Indianapolis)
The jury was comprised of Executive Director of Printed Matter James Jenkin, artist Tauba Auerbach, the Bibliographer at The Museum of Modern Art Library David Senior (whose recent artists' ephemera show can be viewed here) and Printed Matter's Consulting Design Director Garrick Gott.
The chosen artists will be working with Gott to develop their proposed artists' books, which will be published individually over the next year. Each will be accompanied by a book launch and window display.
