The LeRoy Neiman Center for Print Studies is a not-for-profit printshop located in the School of the Arts at Columbia University. Our mission is to provide students, as well as invited artists, a rich environment in which to investigate and produce images through a myriad of printmaking techniques including intaglio, lithography, screenprint, relief and digital imaging. Since its founding in 1996, the Neiman Center has collaborated with more than 60 artists and published close to 600 editions, many of which have been acquired by museums and private collectors around the world.

We are pleased to showcase a selection of newly published and past print projects which embody the experimental nature and diverse visual language of the works made at the Neiman Center. We are featuring a new suite of five images by Alfredo Jaar appropriated from photographs – ranging from the sublime to the tragic – found in a single edition of Life Magazine from 1969. We are also exhibiting a project by Lee Quiñones that highlights the important role of music in his visual work. New color woodcuts by Susanna Coffey, John Walker and Kayla Mohammadi are also on view as well as a new screenprint by Mark Dion which is inspired by his interest in natural history drawings. In addition, to these newly released works we are also exhibiting a selection of past print projects by Sanford Biggers, Cecily Brown, Dinh Q. Lê and Shirin Neshat.
