Printed Matter - Warehouse Sale! June 4 & 5 , 2010
Printed Matter is pleased to announce The Warehouse Sale, an exclusive and limited-time offering of hundreds of titles from our inventory at deep discounts – up to 60% off! The event is being hosted by Paula Cooper Gallery at 521 West 21st St, and Printed Matter will be joined by our neighbor 192 Books, who will be offering a selection of discounted publications as well.
The opening night preview on June 3rd, from 6 – 9 pm will also serve as a benefit for Printed Matter. Tickets to the benefit/opening night reception, which will feature artist/DJs spinning records, will be $10.00, available only at the door. In addition, new print editions by Mark Gonzales and Ari Marcopolous will be available exclusively at the benefit door for only $75.00 each, and includes free admission to the event. The Warehouse Sale will continue Friday and Saturday, June 4th and 5th, from 10am – 6pm, free and open to the public.
Printed Matter is almost 35 years old, and over the years we have collected more work than we have room to house: our shelves, closets and cabinets are literally busting with artists’ books, editions, and multiples. For one evening and two days only, this great bounty will spill out of storage boxes and the backs of shelves onto tables lining the Paula Cooper Gallery space at 521 West 21st Street. Vintage artists books and pamphlets from the 1970’s. 80’s and 90’s; new publications; a large selection of miniature book works; artists records, cassettes, CD’s and videos; T-shirts and other artists’ multiples; both old and new Printed Matter publications; and much more will be on sale at irresistibly discounted prices!
The opening night of the Warehouse Sale is also a benefit for Printed Matter, Inc., a non-profit arts organization. Admission is an affordable and accessible $10.00. Printed Matter will also be releasing four new fundraising editions – two screen prints by Mark Gonzales and two photocopy prints by Ari Marcopolous – each in a signed and numbered edition of 50, that will be available exclusively at the opening reception for only $75 each. Purchase of an edition comes with free admission to the event. There is a sales limit of two each of the four prints per customer. DJ’s Alexis Georgopolous and Nick Relph will be spinning an eclectic and spirited mix of records until 9 PM, and free refreshments will be served courtesy of Printed Matter and Brooklyn Brewery.
