CHRISTINA RAY is pleased to present Mission: Edition, an invitational print exhibition and public-space treasure hunt. Guest curators Genevieve and Liz Dimmitt have selected six artworks to be re-interpreted as limited edition screenprints for the group exhibition. Artists include Ryan Brennan, Amanda Burnham, Judith Hoffman, Joe Iurato, Pim Palsgraaf and Alex Waxman. Prints will be exhibited in the gallery – and distributed throughout New York City. During the run of the show, five prints from each edition will be placed as gifts somewhere within the city. Locations of the public-space gift prints will remain secret until they are announced via the location-based social networking platform Foursquare. Each time a new print is released into the city, Foursquare user “Mission Edition” (http://foursquare.com/user/missionedition) will check in at the drop spot with a hint. An original work by each artist will be presented alongside his or her print in the exhibition. A reception celebrating Mission: Edition will take place at the gallery on Thursday, July 15 from 7 to 9pm and the exhibition runs through August 01. Add “MissionEdition” as a friend on Foursquare and follow @missionedition on Twitter for additional updates..
