World House Profile

In the New York art world since June of 1990, from 1998 to 2002 Donald Taglialatella operated his itinerant World House Gallery, which at the time was based in South Orange, New Jersey, but which made roving exhibitions for the artists he represented in various temporary disused spaces throughout SoHo and Chelsea in New York City.  At the same time, in 1998 he founded his World House Editions imprint, which since 2002 has been his public face in the art world.  World House Editions is a publisher of limited edition prints, portfolios, multiple objects, photographs and video works by an eclectic group of international artists.  We are strictly a publisher - not a printer - and collaborate closely with the artists we publish and work with a select group of contract print workshops and fabricators in the U.S. and Europe in order to realize our projects. Based in a two-storey converted 1940s carriage house in the small town of Middlebury, Connecticut since 2006, we are open by appointment only. World House Editions is a member of the International Fine Print Dealers Association (IFPDA) and the Confédération Internationale des Négociants en Oeuvres d'Art (CINOA) in good standing.  Additionally, Donald Taglialatella is a member of the Association of Print Scholars and also sits on the Board of Directors of the non-profit Center for Contemporary Printmaking in Norwalk, Connecticut.
