I'm writing to let you know about the new project I'm working on while in Paris (if you didn't know: I stopped being the gallery director at NURTUREart and moved to Paris at Christmas!). Its called "Projective City", and I'm pretty excited about it. We've brought together some really interesting, mostly New York-based artists all working on subtly related, quasi-romantic themes, and are looking forward to introducing some of this work through both conventional and non-conventional methods to the French public. We have several projects slowly developing, though at the moment effort is being concentrated on a pop-up group exhibition (details forthcoming soon!)
The whole thing aims to be conceptually structured around the notion of linked projects rather than any particular physical gallery location. In my view it brings together elements of and draws on my experiences with the non-profit gallery, the commercial gallery, artist collaboratives and individual artist's practices. So it is all quite experimental, and we're going to keep things fun!
More about the whole thing can be discovered on the "About" page, so I won't repeat myself here. Please take a moment to poke around:
As residents of various far-flung corners of the artworld, I welcome your feedback, and would certainly appreciate it if you can spread the word (particularly to any of your French acquaintances!). Further aspects of the project will emerge in due course, and I'd like to keep you up to date about them, but I promise not to bombard you with email!
Hope you are all doing well with your respective projects.
Oh: and a quick PS: Bushwick this Friday looks really good: Meg Hitchcock's installation at Famous Accountants and Laundromat's show both look great, and I think it is an "open late" night! Almost makes me homesick!
