Now in its fourth year, PULSE New York is the city's largest art fair dedicated exclusively to contemporary art. This edition will be its most diverse ever, with 101 exhibitors representing 26 countries in Europe, Asia, and the Americas. Its program of large scale sculptures and installations has expanded and will include the PULSE Pause reading room, the PULSE PERFORMANCE series and the PULSE PLAY video lounge.
Making their first appearance are leading international galleries ColletPark, Paris; Habana, Havana City; and Singapore Tyler Print Institute, Singapore, among others. They join blue-chip veteran PULSE exhibitors including Faurschou, Beijing and Copenhagen; Galerie Ernst Hilger/Hilger Contemporary, Vienna; Nina Menocal, Mexico City; and Perugi Artecontemporanea, Padua.
As part of the expanded installation program, R. Luke DuBois, presented by Bitforms Gallery New York, will install a series of 43 large scale light boxes, which initially debuted at the Democratic National Convention in Denver, outside the entrance of the Fair. This year’s unprecedented number of 18 large-scale sculptures and installations will be presented in public spaces throughout the Fair. The entrance will feature a 42 foot tunnel designed and executed by Julian Lwin entitled "Babylon NY".
PULSE PLAY, the video art lounge, returns with Random Rules, organized by Athens-based critic and curator Marina Fokidis. The exhibition encompasses established and emerging artists including Andrea Angelidakis, Keren Cytter, Rodney Graham, Annika Larsson and Miltos Manetas in an exploration of the cultural phenomenon of YouTube.
PULSE PERFORMANCE features a performance by Miriam Cabessa curated by Maureen Sullivan, and Gary Carsley’s Institute for Kontemporary Esthetic Arousal, which debuted at the 2008 Singapore Biennale.
Also returning is an exhibition of MFA students’ works from Parsons The New School for Design curated by Eva Diaz, Senior Curator at Art in General.(read less)
