JORDAN SCHNITZER FAMILY FOUNDATION LECTURE
Established with the generous support of the Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation, this annual program aims to honor and raise public consciousness about the unique ways in which contemporary artists use printmaking in their artistic practice. It has been presented each year at the IFPDA Print Fair since 2014.
Sparked by a keen interest in the inventiveness for printmaking and carrying on a family legacy of collecting art, Jordan Schnitzer began collecting prints in 1998. Today, the collection exceeds 13,000 works and includes many of today’s most important contemporary artists. It has grown to be one of the country’s largest private print collections. He generously lends work from his collection to qualified institutions. The Foundation has organized over 110 exhibitions and has had art exhibited at over 150 museums. The Foundation also contributes to the field of artistic scholarship through the publication of exhibition brochures, texts and print catalogue raisonnés.
