W/–––Projects is an arts initiative in New York that count a gallery space, bi-annual arts publication White Zinfandel and now artist editions within their gamut of productivity. The prints, newly released (“fresh prints”?) are interestingly constrained to four by six inch, one or two colour risographs and feature such estimable names as Keegan McHargue, Rafaël Rozendaal, Amy Yao and Mark Owens.
It’s an interesting set and shows off W/‘s excellent curatorial tastes, making what they’re doing a little more accessible to those outside of New York. Also worthy of a mention is how nicely they’ve been photographed by David Brandon Geeting who has arranged the small prints with cryptic aestheticism as if to emphasise their scale, positioned amongst miscellaneous household items and soft furnishing cut-offs. No questions there, it just works.
