PULSE NY MARCH 3-6, 2011
METROPOLITAN PAVILION | 125 WEST 18TH ST | NEW YORK | NY
Through its annual editions in New York and Miami, PULSE serves as the junction between central and satellite art fairs. Its exhibitors consist of a select group of leading and pioneering international galleries that present works by premier contemporary artists with those of emerging and undiscovered talents. A central component of the fair is its program of commissioned cultural projects that link its audience to all aspects of the visual and performing arts.
PULSE Art Fair moved to the Metropolitan Pavilion on West 18th street, just a short walk from the Chelsea Gallery District. With a strong representation of New York-based galleries, we found Pulse well curated, well lit, easy to navigate and saw some interesting and highly approachable work along the way.
Here’s our list of must-sees from PULSE New York 2011.
1) Baer Ridgeway Exhibitions ( San Francisco) Cassandra C Jones’ solo exhibition
2) CTS Creative Thriftshop (Brooklyn) Eric Doeringer’s set of 75 Stains in portolio and handmade box (after Ed Ruscha) from 2009.
3) Dorsch Gallery (Miami) Robert Thiele’s wood, Acrylic sheet and mixed media wall sculptures.
4) David B Smith (Denver) Molly Dilworth’s 39 Times Square Pour Paintings.
5) ftc (Berlin) Markus Linnenbrink’s epoxy resin sculptures.
6) Joshua Liner Gallery (New York) in the Impulse section presenting a talking David Ellis installation that shouldn’t be missed.
7) Benrimon Contemporary (New York) Trey Speegle’s Yes (You Complete the Picture) in his recognizable paint by numbers painting-style.
FOUNTAIN ART FAIR MARCH 3-6, 2011
THE FRYING PAN | PIER 66 AT 26TH STREET AND 12TH AVENUE | NEW YORK | NY
Fountain Art Fair opened to the general public today on the historic lightship at The Frying Pan. An alternative exhibition of galleries and art collectives, Fountain Art Fair exudes youth and confidence with its street art installations, curated performances, and live music. There is a sense of spontaneity and an overindulgence of the senses that one can get only at a progressive fair like Fountain.
A must-see (and hard to miss) is the site-specific 100-foot long street art installation upon entering the fair. The project is a continuation of Fountain Miami’s highly successful street art installation and features notable artists such as Chris Stain, Dickchicken!, Faro, Gaia, Shark Toof, Clown Soldier, Love Me, Ellis G, Allesandro Echevarria, Lee Trice, Imminent Disaster, Elle, Hellbent, Joe Iurato, and Anthony Sneed.
