Eileen Boxer has supported artists and cultural institutions directly and indirectly for the past 28 years as a designer and producer of multi-media and printed material for the fine arts. She has been celebrated numerous times for her design of art books and invitations since she formed BoxerDesign in 1986—most notable are her highly conceptual invitations for Ubu Gallery ranking to collectible status of ephemera in many museums and private collections. In 1998 the Musée d’Elysée in Lausanne mounted an exhibition solely of the invitations and this work has been published twice in New York Magazine and in books, such as Direct Response by Leslie Sherr and Tactile Graphics by Ferdinand Lewis. She has won several design awards, such as AIGA’s Best Cover for The Surreal Calder. She has designed more than 75 books—for museums, such as the Guggenheim, Tate Modern, The Metropolitan Museum NY, to name just a few; numerous galleries; and directly with individual artists, such as Yoko Ono, Andrée Putnam, Angela Strasshiem and others. Most of her work is in direct service with/and or/for artists and their work while maintaining her own studio practice—most recently included in L’Art Trouvé at Pavel Zoubok. Eileen received the Yoko Ono Lennon Courage Award in 2016 for Report US.
