The Shape We’re In (New York)
As part of Armory Arts Week in New York the Zabludowicz Collection will uproot part of it’s collection and relocate to the 33rd floor of 1500 Broadway. The space will be transformed into a venue for US audiences to discover the activities of the London‐based Zabludowicz Collection, which supports emerging artists and innovative curatorial practice by collecting and exhibiting contemporary art as well as through an extensive education and events programme. This will run for six weeks, The exhibition of works will feature new commissions by four New York‐based artists: Sarah Braman, Ethan Breckenridge, Sean Dack, and Nick van Woert, as well as introducing British artist Matthew Darbyshire in his first exhibition in the United States. Each artist has been invited to respond to this vacant space at the ‘picture postcard’ heart of New York City.
Proposal for a Floor
As part of its commitment to support innovative curatorial practice, the Zabludowicz Collection has invited independent curator Alex Gartenfeld to produce a new exhibition for this unique architectural space. Proposal for a Floor arose out of a dialogue with Sir Norman Rosenthal and includes a number of artists whose works are held in the Zabludowicz Collection. The exhibition features works by Sam Anderson, Zak Kitnick, Dominic Nurre, Anselm Reyle, James Richards, David Scanavino, Josh Tonsfeldt and Kon Trubkovich.
Recent photography from Leipzig
For this day only visitors will also have the opportunity to see a display of the Zabludowicz Collection’s recent photography from Leipzig, Germany in the offices of the Tamares Group at 1500 Broadway. The exceptional photographic practice of the artists, recent graduates from the Academy of Visual Arts, Leipzig, is linked by a studied objectivity and conceptual rigor which runs alongside an in‐depth knowledge and active questioning of the photographic medium. The large scale photographic works in their varied styles and subjects are frequently underlined by subtle humour or social commentary.
