INTERNATIONAL PRINT CENTER NEW YORK (IPCNY) presents Homebody: New Prints 2020/Winter, an exhibition featuring 31 artists from Australia, Canada, Portugal, Ukraine, the United Kingdom, and the United States whose work explores relationships between personal and domestic structures. IPCNY’s New Prints Program is a biannual, juried open call for prints and print-based work that captures current voices and issues in contemporary printmaking.

Throughout the jurying process, Ariana Barat, Gregory Burnet, Orit Mardkha-Tenzer, and Keris Salmon were collectively drawn to works that played with themes of domesticity and place. Burnet noted his affinity for “things we see all the time but maybe become too used to,” including landscapes, domestic interiors, furniture, utensils, and even pets.

From the jury’s selections, a question arises: what makes these mundane spaces, objects, and
relationships unique to an individual’s experience? In Homebody, both homes and bodies serve as sites
where individual memories can ruminate and grow, shaping personal perspectives on our surroundings
and the world. These banal but necessary objects and dwellings, and the ways we interact and depend on
them, shape our understanding of ourselves and of each other. Stella Ebner’s Cricket, Glass & Business
Reply Mail depicts an unexpected view of a kitchen floor, forming an abstraction of domestic space, and
Evgenia Kim’s Koryo Saram co-mingles textiles and traditions from her Uzbek, Korean, and Russian
heritages as a path to defining her identity between diasporas.
