PULSE Contemporary Art Fair announced that its third New York edition would be held at Pier 40 on the West Side Highway at West Houston Street from March 27-30, 2008, concurrently with The Armory Show. The Fair will feature a highly selective presentation of contemporary works by more than 80 international galleries; an expanded set of programs, including the second edition of PULSE PLAY, the video and new technology lounge that debuted in Miami last December; plus the introduction of PULSE PERFORMANCE, a new section of the fair dedicated to the presentation of performance art, featuring Chez Bushwick. Also debuting, PULSE PAUSE, a reading room designed by independent curator Jeffrey Walkowiak with selected students from the MFA Program in Fine Arts at Parsons The New School for Design.

Following its enormous success in Miami, which drew a record 16,000 visitors, PULSE New York promises to offer a vibrant experience. The significantly larger new venue at Pier 40 allows for more spacious and innovative booth displays as well as wider aisles to view the art, visually enhancing the experience for collectors and visitors. According to Director Helen Allen, “Our new venue at Pier 40 provides us with extraordinary opportunities. The larger space will permit us to expand our programming and open up new avenues for discourse in contemporary art.”

Original installations at PULSE New York will include The Lounge Of Ethereal Fun, a children’s VIP lounge created by artist Jenny Marketou along with works by Andy Yoder, Jennifer Burkley Vasher, Graham Caldwell, castaneda/reiman, Ryan Humphrey, Nathaniel Rackowe, Paul Mpagi Sepuya, Federico Solmi, Gabriel Asgar, Mark Anstee, Lucas Lenglet, Mark Shetabi and John Kalymnios.
