Dieu Donné announced the naming of the Jordan Schnitzer Gallery, which took place with a celebratory event on October 24, 2018. Dedicated to exhibiting works on paper by emerging and established artists, the Jordan Schnitzer Gallery will host exhibitions, lectures, and public programming related to papermaking inside Dieu Donné’s home at the historic Brooklyn Navy Yard.
Jordan Schnitzer stated, “I am honored to have the gallery at Dieu Donné named for me, as someone who loves and promotes artists who make work on paper to further their artistic vision. Dieu Donné is the national leader in helping artists to create and use paper in their artmaking process. For over 500 years, art makers have made prints because of the magic created when ink, paint, and paper come together. I look forward to Dieu Donné’s many more decades of success.”
Susan Gosin, Founder and Co-Chair of Dieu Donné, remarks, “Jordan’s continued dedication to Dieu Donné exemplifies our legacy as one of New York City’s most significant cultural organizations. The Jordan Schnitzer Gallery will inspire others to connect with our 40+ year history and ensure that our gallery and studios remain a vital home for many more generations of artists working in handmade paper.”
On view in the Jordan Schnitzer Gallery is an archival exhibition of paper works created at Dieu Donné. The exhibition was curated by Jennifer Farrell, Associate Curator of Drawings and Prints at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
