Now at Volume 2, this edition aims at capturing the diverse beauty of original art in all visual contemporary practices. Artists working in all media that can be depicted on paper are encouraged to submit their portfolio for inclusion.
Every new volume of IWA takes over a year to be produced and each image is carefully selected. For each book, we have two main goals. To produce a unique, individual presentation for each artist, that provides an insightful description of their practice and their career. And second, to produce a beautiful anthology of art, that presents a wide range of contemporary practices, providing a reference of great art, for collectors, galleries, decorators and curators.
Our books are printed in deluxe quality, at 10 x 13 inches (or 25.2 x 33 cm) with a hard cover and dust cover. The paper is high quality gloss paper at 85 lbs and the books are thread sewn, reinforced case bound. Every new volume of ICM is distributed widely in print and online for free, to a long list of select galleries, museums, agencies, collectors, interior designers etc worldwide. The entire book is available to view online and many copies are handed for free at major international art fairs (including Spectrum Miami Basel, Art Expo New York and more).
