Edition launch: Jill Magid

Jill Magid, 10-penny jig, 2021

We are thrilled to launch a new edition by Jill Magid.

Jill Magid’s 10-penny jig is a companion work to her solo exhibition at the Renaissance Society, Tender: Balance, in which she explores the circulation of pennies against the backdrop of the pandemic. Printed on metallic paper and framed in a custom copper frame, the image depicts a special jig that Magid used for engraving the edges of ten pennies at a time. Like a newly minted penny, this artwork articulates a key moment in her new film in the exhibition and appears as an emblem in Magid’s larger ongoing Tender project.

Magid’s piece represents the second edition in the relaunch of the Renaissance Society’s esteemed editions program, which has produced works by Kara Walker, Albert Oehlen, Juan Muñoz, Laura Letinsky, Kerry James Marshall, John Baldessari, Sol LeWitt, Isaac Julian, Nora Schultz, and others. This new chapter of editions forefronts collaboration between the Renaissance Society, artists, and friends to create another platform for experimentation.
