Juror: Dennis Michael Jon, Associate Curator of Prints and Drawings, Minneapolis Institute of Arts
Dennis Michael Jon is associate curator in the Department of Prints and Drawings at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. He is a specialist in modern and contemporary works on paper and artists’ books, Jon has organized more than 50 exhibitions during his museum career, most recently “The World at Work” Images of Labor and Industry, 1850 to Now,” featuring prints, drawings, and photographs by leading American and international artists. He has authored and co-authored ten books and numerous articles and essays on a range of topics, including the catalogue raisonné of the published prints and multiples of Vermillion Editions Limited, a Minneapolis-based collaborative printmaking workshop, whose archive is part of the MIA’s permanent collection. Jon studied studio art and art history at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and received his graduate degree in art history from the University of Minnesota-Minneapolis.

JUROR’S STATEMENT
Being new to the North American Print Biennial, I didn’t know what to expect from the submissions. My first surprise was the sheer number of entries. Nearly 2,400 works of art were presented for consideration—a number that ultimately would be honed to around 135. Even so, there was no guarantee that I’d find enough works of merit to mount an exhibition that represented the diverse currents of contemporary printmaking. I shouldn’t have worried, as the quality of the submissions was on the whole very high.
