Ed. Limitata is a new type of calendar, featuring the works of a series of artists from around the world. The five-year project has launched its first edition for 2009, featuring the works of Alighiero Boetti, David Ellis, Louise Lawler, Emily Prince, Eve Sussman, Sigalit Landau, Bjorn Copeland and more. Great for collectors who don't have the bucks to spend on prints and who like to rotate the works on their wall monthly, each year's run will raise funds for charity, with this year's proceeds going toward The African Medical and Research Foundation, which establishes self-sustaining health care systems in Africa and artisa, a not-for-profit promoting Israeli contemporary artists.
The calendar is put together by Rita de Alencar Pinto, a curator dedicated to making emerging artists more accessible to her network of collectors.
The calendar is being printed in an edition of 800 and is available for $50 on her website.
