Primary Information is proud to be celebrating our 15th anniversary across our 2021-2022 programming season. Since 2006, we have fulfilled a dual role in our vital support of artists, providing access to out-of-print publications and commissioning new books by contemporary artists. To date, we have published over 175 publications and supported more than 1,000 artists.

On the occasion of this milestone moment in our history, we have launched a fundraising campaign to sustain our ongoing operations and support of artists. Throughout our history, we have sold all of our books at cost, enabling us to keep them affordable for our global audience. Donations are essential to the continued fulfillment of our mission, allowing us to maintain our support of artists and keep our publications affordable.

For our anniversary, we have planned our most ambitious season yet, with 12 publications scheduled during the current programming season. These works include facsimile editions of Mary Heilmann’s The All Night Movie, Anne Turyn’s Top Stories periodical, and Rasheed Araeen and Mahmood Jamal’s Black Phoenix; new collections of archival work from Constance DeJong, William Wegman, and Godzilla: Asian American Arts Network; and contemporary books by Cory Arcangel and Stine Janvin, DeForrest Brown, Jr., and Steffani Jemison.

Your fully tax-deductible donation will prove invaluable to our critical support of artists and the medium of artists’ books for years to come. Additionally, you can support the organization by joining as a subscriber to receive all our annual titles.

Primary Information extends our immense gratitude to a visionary group of lead supporters including the Michael Asher Foundation, Pedro Barbosa, Empty Gallery, Jane Hait, the John W. and Clara C. Higgins Foundation, David Joselit, Metabolic Studio, the Orbit Fund, and the Jacques Louis Vidal Charitable Fund for early support of our anniversary campaign.
