Cloudy ☁️ and gray 🌫 predicted? Add some color 🌈 to this day. Step into the @essexstreetmarket and visit the Cuchifritos Gallery + Project Space to see ENDLESS EDITION.
On View through January 28, 2018, Endless Editions transforms Cuchifritos Gallery into an open-access printmaking workshop and Borgesian library, rooted in Jonathan Basile’s ongoing project, Library of Babel.
Within the installation, the @endlesseditions team will situate several performances, along with opportunities for visitors to produce, and reproduce, their own media. Ultimately bringing issues of knowledge accessibility, creative labor, and digital reproduction to bear on Jorge Luis Borges’ concept of the universal library.
Endless Editions will operate a Risograph printer onsite throughout the exhibition, working with participants and visitors to create their own books. A computer workstation will also be included where visitors can access and search the Library of Babel website and a public library that will grow as books are made. Public events will include bookmaking and computer programming seminars, one-day artist residencies with original work on view, and literary readings.

Endless Editions is a publishing and curatorial initiative founded in 2014.
Endless Editions’ mission is to produce and disseminate books or prints by emerging artists, irrespective of age, gender identity, creed, or race. The imprint works primarily with artists who have been historically underrepresented in the gallery system or art market and supports them through the conceptualization and realization of both limited and open edition prints or publications.
