Printed Matter, the Chelsea-based nonprofit art bookstore founded in 1976, is opening an outpost at the Swiss Institute's new home on Second Avenue and St. Mark's Place.

Per artnews:

The venue will be dubbed Printed Matter/St. Mark’s and will carry artist’s books, prints, posters, and the like, as well as offerings from the Swiss Institute’s publishing imprint. Max Schumann, Print Matter’s executive director, said in a statement that the new partnership “presents an amazing opportunity to bring the creative, experimental, and critical work being done in the field of artists’ publications to a broader audience, which is at the heart of Printed Matter’s mission.”

At its Chelsea location, Printed Matter has long offered a rich array of talks, workshops, and so forth, and the organization said in a news release that a “robust program of public events” will be on offer in the Swiss Institute building...

The East Village location of Printed Matter will also open with the Swiss Institute on June 21.
