Approximately 45 galleries and curators presented art, installations, performances, talks, and films in a creative architecturally designed environment allowing each art project to have its own identity and a unique art interaction with the public.
Cutlog NY focuses on showing cutting-edge and established galleries that promote the work of contemporary artists. The fair fosters new relationships between galleries, collectors and art institutions to form 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.
The five day event is taking place in one of Manhattan’s most vibrant and creative area, the Lower East Side. Over the past years, the neighborhood has become a new hub for emerging and innovative galleries and cutlog NY is part of this growing community to become the downtown art fair. Occupying The Dutch Neo-Gothic building, a former public school (PS 160), cutlog NY is hosted by the Clemente Soto Vélez Center at 107 Suffolk Street, between Rivington and Delancey Streets.
Each of the roughly 45 participants present an original project featuring one or more works by artists selected by a jury of professionals. A selection of sculptures and installations are displayed in the Clemente building and courtyard.
A film festival is also being held during cutlog NY, with a series of performances and talks which are announced in the program section.
cutlog is sponsored by the Franco-German television network ARTE.
