Noël DOLLA, Michelle GRABNER, Russell MALTZ, Raul MORAU + Marcos CHAVES, Gustavo PRADO, Sreshta PREMNATH, Jeanne SILVERTHORNE, Adam SIMON, Robert YASUDA - Position Matters, curated by Saul OSTROW
Galerie Richard and MINUS SPACE are delighted to present their first joint group exhibition entitled Position Matterscurated by renowned critic, curator, and educator Saul Ostrow. Bridging the Lower East Side and Dumbo gallery neighborhoods, the concurrent exhibition will feature new and historical works by thirteen New York and international artists spanning three generations.
Bringing together artists working with a diverse array of material and conceptual concerns, Position Matterspresents works where siting and location play a critical role in the viewer’s experience and comprehension of the work. Curator Saul Ostrow states, “The artists in Position Matters abandon the frame, traditional formats, the pedestal, and placing things at eye level. They align their works with the body and address the viewer somatically and cognitively. By doing so the work becomes more a presence, an intervention, an event.”
Artists on view at Galerie Richard include Noël Dalla, Michelle Grabner, Russell Maltz, Raul Mourão + Marcos Chavez/RM+MC, Richard Nonas, Gustavo Prado, Sreshta Rit Premnath, Jeanne Silverthorne, Adam Simon, and Robert Yasuda. Artists presented at MINUS SPACE include Don Dudley, Ivelisse Jiménez, Russell Maltz, Richard Nonas, and Robert Yasuda.
