A New York City Print Week Event “One Every Day,” as presented by the EFA Project Space
“The exhibition foregrounds the relationship of printed ephemera to cultural and artistic production, and marks the curatorial debut for Printeresting.org.”
“From the detritus under the windshield and the debris in
our pockets to gig posters mounted on telephone poles, One Every Day attests that all varieties of print ephemera share the following three
characteristics: fleeting function, low-cost means of production, and the fact that somebody out there loves them.”
Location: EFA Project Space
Saturday, November 7, 6-9 pm
On view from November 5 through December 19, 2009

Article by Traci Vogel discusses Adam Champman’s work, “Diagram of Isolated Moments Forming a Memory.”
“The final artwork resembles an ink-and-watercolor sketch, and is displayed on a screen that is framed and mounted like a traditional drawing, so it's as if you're watching an invisible artist think a painting into being. Perhaps Chapman, who teaches at Parsons, the New School for Design, in New York, is making a statement about art as process; the compositions, he says, are generated by different rules each time.”

“For his current show, "[sic]," Walter Robinson makes sumptuously enameled sculptures that display an irresistibly light satirical touch: he's a Good Humor moralist. Robinson explores the misuse of language in American religion, politics, advertising, and modern art.”
