Printed Matter has announced the resignation of AA Bronson as Chief Executive of the organization.
Philip Aarons, Chair of the Printed Matter Board, said: “AA Bronson has accomplished a remarkable transformation of our institution over the last six years by bringing a clear, new relevance to young artists while consistently celebrating what was best in our past. The move to a cool, highly visible Chelsea storefront, the revival of our publishing program, the excellence of our exhibitions and perhaps most significantly, his tireless work in the creation and expansion of The NY Art Book Fair have made Printed Matter matter again.”
AA Bronson will remain at Printed Matter until after this year’s NY Art Book Fair, the non-profit fair that he founded as a Printed Matter project in 2006. This year’s Fair features 285 exhibitors from 24 countries, and will be presented at MoMA PS1 from November 5 to 7, with a preview on November 4.
Bronson is departing to spend time on personal projects, especially “Haute Culture,” the retrospective of General Idea that opens at the Musée d’art moderne de la ville de Paris in February, 2011.
Printed Matter’s Board of Directors announced that Catherine Krudy, currently Printed Matter’s Director, will become Acting Executive Director.
