About the event
This year the VIP Preview for the IFPDA Print Fair is opening one hour earlier exclusively for Museum Curators, Directors, and Trustees. Please join us for coffee at 11 AM and an opportunity for an unhurried private viewing of the fair.
We will also be presenting the Richard Hamilton Acquisition Prize (sponsored by Champion & Partners) and the 2023 IFPDA Foundation Book Award.
Through the generosity of ChampionScott Partners, the Richard Hamilton Acquisition Prize provides $10,000 for a Museum’s acquisition of one or more prints from any period at the IFPDA Fine Art Print Fair. In naming the prize, ChampionScott Partners has chosen to honor the late Richard Hamilton, as a tribute to the artist’s profound influence on their own appreciation of prints and to acknowledge his impact on generations of printmakers.
The IFPDA Foundation Book Award was founded in 2004 to highlight and promote published books, articles, or catalogues on fine prints. This annual award honors excellence in research, scholarship, and the discussion of new ideas in the field of fine prints. The award provides one outstanding recipient and publication with a prize of $3,000, and represents another milestone for the organization. As a result, the winner will receive acclaim from one of the most recognizable bodies in the print world.
