Artists space New York

Posted On August 11, 2010 

The artist’s space here has gotten major makeover. This place is one of the bigger art institutions here in New York. This small and venerable place is apparently the pioneer of the downtown alternative art scene.   This place has been swept clean by the new broom that belongs to Stefan Kalmar. This German born director of the Munich Kunstrverein; took over as the director and the chief curator in two thousand and nine.

The transformation of this place has been brought out into focus. . The new collections here are celebrated by a beautiful adjustable summer show that usually takes place on a Sunday this is the first American series of exhibitions with factory made sculptures. The sculptures are made of raw galvanized steel. These are done by the German minimalist called Charlotte Posenenske.

Mr. Kalmar instigated a redesign of the new york artists pace last summer.  The physical show place, the web site and the stationary have been made better and have progressed aggressively due to the many programs that have been organized. He said that he wanted to make this as a space for artists.

Earlier this year he arrived with a piece of sculpture that looked like a mix between Soho meets Bauhaus. The project is greatly aided with has been worked on by the Architects institute for applied urbanism and Jesko in Berlin, Germany.

The New York site has a common room. Also this place received a renovation grant from the Louise Bourgeois Foundation.

The Artists space was completely stripped and left almost bare.  The big square corner loft in Soho has been home to this place from ninety three. . These place two long rows of beautifully designed windows that are easily visible.

There is no dry wall as such for the office space however; the office area is demarcated by studs.  The light, transparency and approachability of this place are perfectly set.  The desks, the vitrines and benches here; are in the designed likes of Florence Knoll.  Some of these are also designed by Mr. Fezer and further fabricated by Common Room. The founding director of the museum of modern art said that if he were responsible for the addition, he would most probably do the exact same thing!

The coup de grace is now sanded and is on the floor. The left raw is a la Tate Modern.  This place has yellow sunshine. Because of this, the plane turns gray-brown. The wood seems like it is ready for be painted on. This place is also ideal for dance performances and parties. The new artist’s space here consists some of then best architectural invention of the minimalist Michael Asher and the early days of Soho’s art dominated days. Most of the renovations here are quite less. This is for reasons like budget and taste.  This is primarily done to avoid being noticed by the inspectors of the building department.

Soho’s architecture turns out to be a part of the artist’s space’s history.  The transformation has been experimented with the local visitors who come here. This exhibition program has taken Mr. Kalmar quite a bit of time to get it running up to speed.  Although; the entire thing, seems to be running on cylinders for the Posenenske show. There are about fifty metal sculptures. These are close to the many air ducts that are visible here.  There are six different types of appearances.

Rectilinear chute like sections along with V shaped and triangular shaped units meet together to form double X’s.  This place enables the combinations from both the corners to branch out.  The elements here can be simply screwed together or stacked.  These units have been kept here to be arranged and re arranged by the visitors.

Apparently Ms. Posenenske claims that her objects look like unrecognizable artworks.  She laments that the social function of art has been regressed.  She also said that she would, within the year, give up making art and begin working on a doctorate.

Her main objective was to affirm Duchamp’s concept that the person who looks at the art, is also part of the art completion process. This apparently works as both toy blocks for adults, and also these have been used as vehicles for expression. Mr. Kalmar later divided into four two week installation. The first one is conducted by himself personally and along with him there are other two artists who also conduct the installation and  the rest is handles by the staff members of the center.

The first installation is more a less more classically oriented. , this place has photographs that give hints of a major collaboration by Tony Smith and Donald Judd. Both of these are famous minimalists.
