Inventing Downtown: Artist-Run Galleries in New York City, 1952-1965
January 10 – April 1, 2017
Focusing on groundbreaking experimentation in the New York art scene that spawned our contemporary art world, Inventing Downtown: Artist-Run Galleries in New York City, 1952–1965 chronicles the development of new art forms and practices in fourteen key artist-run and experimental galleries, including the Tanager, Judson, and Reuben. The exhibition is divided into five sections: Leaving Midtown, City as Muse, Space and Time, Politics as Practice, and Defining Downtown. Each features paintings, sculptures, installations, and photographs by well-known artists—such as Jim Dine, Allan Kaprow, Alex Katz, Claes Oldenburg, and Yoko Ono, as well as by others who deserve to be better known. Inventing Downtown is curated by Melissa Rachleff, clinical associate professor in NYU’s Steinhardt School.
