We are happy to share that BLOUINARTINFO featured Cade Tompkins Projects’ satellite exhibition, Art in an Airstream, in two articles by Margaret Carrigan.
In “What to See at the 2016 IFPDA Print Fair,” posted on November 3, 2016: Just outside of Park Avenue Armory, Cade Tompkins Projects, based out of Rhode Island, is staging a satellite presentation to the IFPDA Print Fair, entitled “Art in an Airstream.” Featuring the whimsical screen prints of Allison Bianco and Kevin Frances’s woodcut quotidian interior scenes, among many others, the exhibition is hosted in a retro-chic Airstream International 28 RV.
In “Hot Off the Presses: Highlights from New York’s 2016 Print Fairs,” posted on November 7, 2016: Booth space has long been coveted and there’s a lengthy list of IFPDA members waiting to secure a spot in future iterations of the fair. But that didn’t stop recent IFPDA inductee Cade Tompkins from securing a spot this year, albeit unconventionally: The Rhode Island-based art dealer arranged to show her roster of printmakers in an RV parked outside of the Armory building. Tompkins chose a retro Airstream RV in honor of Wade F. Thompson, a steadfast patron of the Park Avenue Armory and former head of Thor Industries (which owns Airstream), proving a thoughtful send-off for the fair as a whole as it migrates westward. To commemorate the “Art in an Airstream” exhibition, Tompkins commissioned an edition of 25 prints by artist Allison Bianco depicting a fanciful holographic foil RV floating through the air.
