VIP Private Preview Brunch March 4, 2010 from 9am to 12pm

New Location at 330 West Street at the West Side Highway and West Houston Street


PULSE New York returns this March 4 through 7, 2010 to host over sixty exhibitors including thirteen solo exhibitions of emerging artists in the IMPULSE section. Galleries hail from 19 countries and four continents. The fair will inaugurate its new home at 330 West Street, an industrial warehouse complex with 45,000 square feet of exhibition space.

“In an effort to constantly enhance the PULSE experience, we are excited to be moving to 330 West Street on the Hudson River,” says Helen Allen, Executive Director of PULSE. “The manageable size combined with the high ceilings in this new space and innovative layout will allow us to continue the tradition of incorporating our physical environment into the overall presentation of thought-provoking contemporary art both within the exhibitor booths and with site specific installations.”

PULSE New York will feature a notable number of returning exhibitors most of which have exhibited at several New York and Miami editions of PULSE including Conner Contemporary from Washington, DC; Winkleman Gallery, P·P·O·W Gallery, Davidson Contemporary and Andrea Meislin from New York; Galerie Ernst Hilger from Vienna; Mark Moore Gallery from Santa Monica; Galerie Stefan Röpke from Cologne and Madrid; Perugi Artecontemporanea from Padua, Italy; Horrach Moya from Palma de Mallorca, Spain; M+B from Los Angeles; Diana Lowenstein from Miami; and Habana from Havana. The Fair will also welcome several newcomers with strong international credentials, among which are Tyler Rollins Fine Art, and Art in General from New York; Koplin del Rio from Culver City, CA; Ai Kowada Gallery from Tokyo; Galerie PICI from Seoul; and Antena Estudio from Mexico City.

In addition to gallery booth presentations, PULSE New York will once again host its celebrated series of programs including large scale and site-specific installations and PULSE Play. This year’s installation series will present works by international artists in a wide range of mediums and was selected to highlight the environment in which they are being presented. Among the installations featured at PULSE will be an immersive sound and light environment by Iranian-American artist David Abir, walls of anachronistic vintage television screens by Julian Lwin (Great Britain), a sound and light sculpture by Augustina Woodgate (Argentina), a 20 foot tall Orange Tree by Alexandre Arrechea (Cuba),and a mixed media mural by Anthony Lister (Australia). This year’s PULSE Play, a curated video lounge, entitled Ordinary Occurrences, presents curator Deborah Cullen’s (Director of Curatorial Programs at New York’s El Museo del Barrio) response to the recent horrific events in Haiti and will feature recent work by artists of Caribbean and Latin American descent.

The PULSE Prize and PULSE People’s Choice Award will also return, to be given to booth presentations of distinction in IMPULSE, the section of the fair dedicated to solo exhibitions of new work by emerging artists. The PULSE Prize will be presented to an artist chosen by the PULSE Committee; and the People’s Choice Award will be awarded to an artist chosen by the public visiting the fair. Both prizes embody PULSE’s commitment to providing a platform for emerging talent and giving them due recognition in an international art fair setting. Past PULSE Prize recipients include Duke Riley, Travis Somerville, Chris Natrop, Chen Chieh-Jen, Philip Gurrey, Emilo Chapela Perez, Eric Beltz, and Okay Mountain, several of whom have gone on to receive critical acclaim.
