Join ICI and Jacob Kassay for a toast to celebrate the first-ever limited edition artwork by the artist. When ICI invited Kassay to collaborate on a new work, he took the opportunity to realize a piece that he has wanted to create for some time. Signaling an anticipated new development in his practice, this suite of 12 silkscreens continues his interest in experimental processes and rigorous systems, while exploring how to slow down the digestion of information. Using the final edition of The Buffalo News from Monday August 29, 2011 (which is the local newspaper in his hometown on the date of his birthday) Kassay has produced 12 unique works, each in an edition of 5, using all the sheets that comprise the newspaper that day. Using a printing process that involves coating each double spread in mineral oil to create a screen that captures the front and the back, as well as the paper texture of each page, the resulting works resonate with a fragility of line and form that imbues the fleeting nature of the daily news. Produced to benefit ICIs exhibitions, curatorial training and public programs, Untitled 1-12 will be celebrated on Friday October 28, from 5-7pm at ICI. Three of each of the 12 unique images will be sold individually, and two will only be made available as full portfolios. This event is RSVP only. To RSVP or for more information, contact Bridget Finn at firstname.lastname@example.org or call at 212.254.8200 ext. 124.
