And here is a letter from the co-founder / directors James Hoff and Miriam Katzeff on supporting Primary Information’s Tenth Anniversary Print Fund.
Dear Friends and Supporters,
Primary Information is excited to be celebrating our tenth anniversary during the 2016-2017 programming season. Over the past decade, we have produced over 100 publications and supported the work of more than 400 artists. This year, we will hit another important benchmark–we will have paid artists a total of more than $100,000 in artist fees and royalties. The generosity of our audience and our artistic community has been integral to this success, and we are now in need of your support again.
Since our founding in 2006, we have steadily increased the number of publications that we produce to ten per year and we plan to double this number over the next decade. In an attempt to meet the additional printing expenses that this increased programming will incur, Primary Information is seeking to raise $50,000 to establish an annual Print Fund. As we celebrate our tenth anniversary, please consider making a fully tax-deductible donation now to help enable the production of another two hundred artists’ books in the years to come.
Primary Information has proven that it is possible to produce affordable, accessible, and challenging publications while providing much-needed support to artists. Our ambitious program includes the publication of new and classic artists’ books and magazines such as An Anthology of Concrete Poetry, Avalanche, Destroy All Monsters magazine, Fantastic Architecture, Lutz Bacher’s Do You Love Me?, Darren Bader’s 77 and/or 58 and/with 19, Sarah Crowner’s FORMAT, Dan Graham’s Rock/Music Writings, Elad Lassry’s On Onions, Lee Lozano’s Notebooks, and many more. This programming year, we will be publishing works by Douglas Huebler, Tuli Kupferberg, and Carolee Schneemann, as well as a facsimile edition of Art-Rite magazine, among others.
Your support as an inaugural contributor to Primary Information’s Print Fund will prove invaluable to our continued dedication to artists’ publications and the artists who make them.
James Hoff and Miriam Katzeff
