Five Galleries to Follow at IFPDA and Contemporary Istanbul
In the midst of our IFPDA Print Fair and Contemporary Istanbul previews, we treat you to five outstanding fair booths that will be on view when doors open next week. Even if you can’t make it to Istanbul or New York’s Park Avenue Armory next week, follow these fantastic galleries.
Mixografia: Los Angeles gallery Mixografia has a rich history as a family-run gallery and workshop that has developed Mixografia©, an innovative printing technique to create prints in relief with fine, three-dimensional surface details. At IFPDA the gallery shows a dynamic collection of their surface-relief prints including John Baldessari photomontages, a basketball-inspired mosaic by Dario Escobar, and other prints infused with physicality.
Leslie Sacks Fine Art: Also located in L.A., Leslie Sacks Fine Art specializes in fine prints and unique works on paper by modern and contemporary masters. In its eclectic IFPDA booth the gallery shows lithographs from Lichtenstein an etching and an aquatint by Picasso, a Christo and Jeanne-Claude Storefront and two later works by Warhol among other modern and contemporary masters.
