From May 8-11, 2014 Amstel Gallery from Amsterdam presents ‘What Rules’ with new works by curators/artists Gregory de la Haba, Kathy Grayson, Laura O’Reilly and Lee Wells at the second edition of Cutlog Contemporary Art Fair in New York. At Cutlog 50 galleries and curators will present art, installations, performances, talks, and films in a creative, architecturally designed environment which allows each art project to have its own identity and a unique art interaction with the public.
Cutlog NY will focus on showing cutting-edge and established galleries that promote the work of contemporary artists. The fair aims to foster new relationships between galleries, collectors and art institutions, forming a collaborative platform for building new perspectives on contemporary art. cutlog NY aims to be a creative laboratory, showcasing works by artists from all over the world and offering them the opportunity to gain global visibility.
Cutlog is thrilled to announce its return to the Clemente, a magnificent Dutch Neo-Gothic building and the Lower East Side’s premier cultural venue. Recent years have seen a dramatic shift in New York, with more than 110 galleries opening between Canal and Houston in the Lower East Side. The area has transformed into a key meeting point for international artists and collectors, also serving as the first stop connecting the burgeoning North Brooklyn artistic scene to Manhattan. With this geographical shift, a new breed of artists has gained a presence within an increasingly globalized market, disrupting norms.
Each of the 50 exhibitors will present an original project featuring one or more works by artists selected by a jury of professionals. A selection of sculptures and installations will be displayed in the Clemente building and courtyard. A film festival and a series of performances will be presented as an extension of the projects presented within the booths.
