Peter Blum has collaborated with a wide range of artists both as a gallerist and a print and book publisher. Blum began Peter Blum Edition in 1980 and was among the first print publishers to work with a new generation of European and American artists including John Baldessari, Louise Bourgeois, Eric Fischl, Barbara Kruger, Brice Marden, and James Turrell among others. In 1984, Blum co-founded Parkett Magazine, an international forum for contemporary art. The Peter Blum Edition Archive (1980-1994) is located at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston and was the subject of the exhibition “Singular Multiples” in 2006.

 

From 1993 to 2012, Peter Blum SoHo at 99 Wooster hosted exhibitions of artists working in a variety of media such as Alighiero Boetti, Louise Bourgeois, and Francesco Clemente among others. In 2006, Blum opened an additional exhibition space in Chelsea, and In 2013, Blum moved his galleries to West 57th Street in Midtown. Most recently in 2017, the gallery relocated downtown to a 7,000 square foot space at 176 Grand Street. Peter Blum Edition continues to publish editions with recent examples by artists that include Tacita Dean, Alfredo Jaar, Huma Bhabha, and Alex Katz.

“We are pleased to present ‘Louise Bourgeois: Prints Published by Peter Blum Edition’ celebrating the collaboration between artist and print publisher from 1988-2004, featuring ten available prints and portfolios. Louise Bourgeois was born in Paris in 1911, and she passed away in New York in 2010. Over the course of nearly a century, Bourgeois would become known for her sculptures, drawing, and prints that emerged from emotions she struggled with throughout her life. The artist's printed oeuvre, both figurative and abstract, includes subject matter she revisited across decades offering insight towards her creative process and her personal history.”
