Endless EditionsNew York
Endless Editions is a publishing initiative founded by Paul John and Anthony Tino in January 2014 and joined by Valerie Werder in February 2016. Endless Editions’ mission is to produce and disseminate artist’s books and prints by emerging artists, regardless of age, gender orientation, race, or gallery representation. Endless Editions works primarily with artists who have been historically underrepresented in the gallery system and art market, and supports them through the conceptualization and realization of limited and open edition prints and publications. Conceived as a way relieve economic burden from artists while providing them a platform for publication, Endless Editions puts forth a model of socially responsible publication and exhibition. Endless Editions operates a Risograph print studio in Newark, New Jersey and a space at the Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop in Manhattan.
Over the course of the last two years, Endless Editions has published over forty titles by sixty artists, examples of which are held in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art Library, the New York Public Library, and the Thomas J. Watson Library at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Endless Editions has organized sixteen exhibitions; started a residency program, The Copy Shop Residency, which has hosted twelve artists; and held educational seminars at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, and the Museum of Arts and Design, New York. Endless Editions operated an exhibition space in Chinatown for six months in 2015 – 2016 and held six exhibitions there. Publications have been exhibited at The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA, Los Angeles; the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; MoMA PS1, New York; Mixed Greens Gallery, New York; Desert Island, New York; Printed Matter, Inc., New York; and The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, and have been archived at the Zuckerman Museum of Art, Atlanta.
