Durham Press was founded in 1988 in a beautiful restored school in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, a short drive from New York City. Our facility houses a gallery and two printmaking studios, with silkscreen, hydraulic, and etching presses, as well as a large wood and metal shop. These studios and workspaces allow visiting artists the tools they need to explore the possibilities of printmaking and push the boundaries of this traditionally two dimensional media. Durham Press has been a member of the International Fine Print Dealers Association since 2000 and has participated in the Print Fair since 2002.

On View: Mickalene Thomas @ Galerie Volkshaus


Absolut Art Bureau, the unit within The Absolut Company responsible for global art initiatives, is pleased to announce a collaboration with Brooklyn-based artist Mickalene Thomas on a large-scale art bar installation that will be in operation during Art Basel’s show in Basel (June 13 – 16, 2013).

The ambitious installation, Better Days, will transform the Galerie at Volkshaus, in downtown Basel, into an immersive art experience for the duration of the show. It is inspired by a theatrical play ‘Put a Little Sugar in my Bowl’ and parties hosted by Thomas’s mother in the late ‘70s.

Better Days will present a nightly programme curated by Mickalene Thomas, including live performances and appearances by guest DJs. The bar will serve bespoke ABSOLUT cocktails designed by the artist in keeping with the installation’s theme.

Thomas will transform the Galerie at Volkshaus, Basel into an apartment environment that takes its inspiration from the parties hosted by her mother and long-time muse in the late ‘70s.

Better Days is Mickalene Thomas’s literal and conceptual reconstruction of the 1970s domestic aesthetic, complete with faux wood panelling and wallpaper as well as custom sofas reupholstered with the artist’s signature textiles. Each evening, Thomas will introduce guest and resident DJ performers, including DJ YSL, Derrick Adams and Simon de Pury, who will emulate the disco soundtracks of her mother’s parties. Among the guest performers will be local jazz musicians, as well as Solange Knowles, the internationally-renowned recording artist who has collaborated with Thomas on several recent creative projects.
