Pratt Fine Arts’ participation in UNTITLED demonstrates a commitment to alumni and celebrates the launch of Pratt Institute Editions (PIE). PIE is the publisher of Pratt Fine Arts Department’s edition multiples. Led by master printer Caitlin Riordan and printmaking faculty Grayson Cox, PIE is committed to fostering innovative collaborative relationships across generations and communities. All proceeds from artwork sales will be shared equally between the artists and a new Fine Arts MFA scholarship fund.

PIE projects at UNTITLED:
- X-Ghost: In printmaking, “ghost” refers to the faded (ghostly) image that appears when a matrix is passed through the print press for a second time. We invited four professional artists to participate, two external to our community; Angela Dufresne and Geoff Chadsey; and two MFA alumni; Lisa Sanditz MFA ’10 and Kristyn Mckinney MFA ‘18. Over the course of three days, these four artists collaborated on a print series, responding to the marks/images made by each other. This collaboration was akin to an “exquisite corpse” project, with an etched plate serving as the matrix to which each artist contributes their own unique response. Pratt Institute is excited to share these prints at Miami!
- Limited Editions: PIE’s inaugural limited edition print by Trudy Benson (MFA ‘10) is the first to be published by Pratt since The Pratt Graphics Center (founded in 1956, disbanded in 1986). Trudy Benson’s new print will be exhibited alongside two from The Pratt Graphics Center archive by artists Lee Krasner and Ray Johnson.
Join Pratt Institute in Miami to celebrate their students and alumni, and to raise scholarship funds for future Fine Arts MFA students.
