NEW SWOON PRINT


To celebrate the launch of Swoon's fleet of ships on the Hudson river, Paper Monster has released a beautiful new Swoon print "Switchback Sisters". All proceeds from this print will go to help those involved in the traveling exhibition "Swimming Cities of Switchback Sea" which runs from August 15th through September 7th.

Swimming Cities of Switchback Sea is a flotilla of seven intricately hand crafted vessels that will navigate the stretch of the Hudson River between Troy and the New York harbor this August 15th - September 7th. Imagined as a hybrid between boats and bits of land mass broken off and headed out to sea, the Switchback vessels will make stops in towns along the river bringing performances and music. Over the course of three weeks they will make their way toward their home port - an invented landscape tucked into a niche along the East River in Long Island City, Queens. More info on the project here.

Above is a detailed section of the print which is 11 x 32 Inches and silkscreen Ink and Stain on Archival Paper. See the full print image here
