Primary Information is a non-profit organization devoted to printing artists books, artist writings, out of print publications and editions. Primary Information was formed in 2006 by Miriam Katzeff and James Hoff to foster intergenerational dialogue through the publication of artists’ books and writings by artists—emerging, mid-career, and established. Our period of focus is from the early Sixties to the present, with an emphasis on the conceptual practice begun in the mid Sixties and the strategy of using publications as an extension of this practice.
Our program involves three distinct components: (1) the publication of lost or unpublished material still vital to contemporary discussions, (2) the publication of books by contemporary artists, and (3) the publication of editions that function as publications, though may take the shape of say a record or poster (in this way, we are very much influenced by how Printed Matter has come to define the artist book and its varied forms since the 1960s). Our aim is to reach audiences throughout the world, those to whom publications can reach but galleries and museums cannot.
Primary Information is not currently accepting unsolicited submissions.
Primary Information receives generous support through grants from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts, the Foundation for Contemporary Arts, Art Dealers Association of America, the New York State Council on the Arts, the Stichting Egress Foundation, the Buddy Taub Foundation, and individuals worldwide.
