Pratt Institute Editions (PIE)

PIE is the publisher of Pratt Fine Arts Department’s edition multiples. PIE’s mission is to produce professional fine art multiples that connect our student community to a broader cultural context. Led by master printer Caitlin Riordan and printmaking faculty Grayson Cox, PIE is committed to fostering new and innovative collaborative relationships across generations and communities.

At UNTITLED we will exhibit works from two PIE projects:

X-Ghost: In printmaking, “ghost” refers to the faded (ghostly) image that appears when a matrix is passed through the print press for a second time. We invited four professional artists to participate, two external to our community; Angela Dufresne and Geoff Chadsey; and two MFA alumni; Lisa Sanditz MFA’10 and Kristyn Mckinney MFA ‘18. Over the course of three days, these four artists collaborated on a print series, responding to the marks/images made by each other. This collaboration was akin to an “exquisite corpse” project, with an etched plate serving as the matrix to which each artist contributes their own unique response. We are excited to share these prints at Miami!

Limited Editions: PIE’s inaugural limited edition print by Trudy Benson (MFA ‘10) is the first to be published by Pratt since The Pratt Graphics Center (founded in 1956) disbanded in 1986. Trudy Benson’s new print will be exhibited alongside two from The Pratt Graphics Center, by artists Lee Krasner and  Ray Johnson.

We hope to see you in Miami to celebrate our students and our alumni, and to raise scholarship funds for future Fine Arts MFA students!

Opening Reception November 2, 7-9 PM

What happens when you get the work of 19 Scorpio artists in a room? As you might suspect, rather than finding one answer or specific commonality that weaves together or easily connects these distinct artists, the results are wild and manifold. In the conversations among the artists who organized the exhibition, a telling observation was made: Scorpios often reside in the dark, but tend to gravitate towards the light.

Needless to say, Scorpios are intense and complex and often misunderstood. And while fiercely independent, we also thrive on loyalty, friendship and community. I have often playfully asked myself why there are so many contemporary visual artists born under Scorpio (I too am one, and historically it also seems to be true).  It is no wonder then that the idea for this exhibition began when four Scorpio artists-- Carl D'Alvia, Alicia Gibson, Anthony Miler, and Rachel Schmidhofer—began riffing on their relationship to their shared astrological sign. Profound or playful? As it turns out, they know many other Scorpio-born artists…and (of course) the stars aligned, and the exhibition became a reality in November, at the height of Scorpio season. I invite you to unpack this complex exhibition and experience the reveal that is uniquely Scorpio.
