About the Event

VIP Reception to precede a public conversation at 11am.  

International Print Center New York is pleased to host a VIP reception for History as Matrix, a conversation between artists Emma Nishimura and Tahir Carl Karmali, whose work is on view in IPCNY's current exhibition Paper Borders. Hear from the artists on the ways they integrate historic documents, photographs, and interviews into their printmaking and hand-papermaking practices. Moderated by Regine Basha, Senior Program Associate, Civitella Ranieri Foundation.

International Print Center New York is pleased to announce its first two-person exhibition, Paper Borders, which brings into dialogue the works of Emma Nishimura (b. 1982, Toronto) and Tahir Carl Karmali (b. 1987, Nairobi), artists who share a commitment to unearthing historical and ongoing stories of migration, trans-generational memory, and xenophobia. Using the materiality of print and handmade paper, the two- and three-dimensional works in this exhibition speak to cross-cultural and deeply embedded global struggles. Here, the precarity of paper becomes a metaphor for the precarity of place.
