Small Editions presents 6 exhibitions a year through it’s Curatorial Residency Program. Each year an emerging curator is selected to organize thematic exhibitions to nurture a conversation between contemporary art and artists books and to influence the work within Small Editions’ studio.

Small Editions’ current curator-in-residence is Alt Esc.

Alt Esc is a Brooklyn-based curatorial team and publication started by Alison Sirico and Irina V Makarova in May 2016. Sparked by the realization that disparity exists between the institutionalized art world and the new wave of rising artists, Alt Esc was founded to vocalize the leading ideas and trends in young contemporary studio practice.
