A conversation with Panayiotis Terzis, a NYC based artist, publisher and printer who works in a variety of media to collapse the relics of the distant past with the artifacts of our chaotic present in search of future possible narratives for human kind.
Terzis's work has been widely exhibited nationally and internationally, including venues such as Printed Matter, Inc., Andreas Melas Presents (Athens), The Robert Rauschenberg Foundation, Exit Art, Ed. Varie; Allegra LaViola Gallery, Art Basel, Pera Museum, and No. 12 Gallery, Tokyo. Terzis's work has been featured in innumerable publications including Vice Magazine, Mould Map II, Zine Soup, Salt Hill, Gigantic Worlds, Cosmos, and Creeps Annual, and he has worked with American Apparel, Digitaria, Struck Inc., and other brands. His artist books, zines and print editions are held in the permanent collection of the MoMA Library, the Brooklyn Museum, the New York Public Library and the collection of Stanford University among others. He currently teaches printmaking and color theory at Parsons University and School of Visual Arts. Terzis's first 2016 publication, Megalith 2, is available through Endless Editions, and his work is on view at Spring/Break art fair in NYC from March 3-7, 2016 curated by Andrea McGinty.
Paper Cuts is an exploration of the contemporary world of zines and DIY publishing. Hosted by Christopher Kardambikis, each program will feature writers, performers, and artists who have shared their work in print, on paper, and in small editions. Zines are truly dynamic publications that have built and supported engaged communities around ideals, experiences, genres, music, politics, poetry…anything that can be printed, shared, and/or mailed. The series will act as a cross section of this varied landscape and rich history. Listen to voices that would normally live in your hands and demand your eyeballs.more
