In conjunction with Lonely Hearts: New Prints 2021/Summer, join us on Tuesday, August 10 at 7 pm ET for our last online artist conversation with exhibiting artists Diana Behl, Ellen Lesperance, and Austin Nash. In this dialogue moderated by Jenn Bratovich, International Print Center New York's Exhibitions and Curatorial Manager, the artists will discuss how their unique approaches to constraint, process, and abstraction—using writing prompts, a daily print practice, and archival research and the grid—inform their works. 

Update: the recording is now available to watch on YouTube
