The Second Annual Chelsea Art Walk will take place at over 125 galleries and art institutions on Thursday, 28 July from 5 – 8 PM. Each location will have extended hours and many will have talks from artists, curators and gallery owners, as well as live performances, book sales, book signings, and receptions.
A guide to the Walk will be available in the next week, and we will post it here as well. In the meantime, visit the Chelsea Art Walk website for more information.
Soho20 will be hosting the Opening Reception for its 16th Annual International Exhibition (see show card below) during this time, and we hope you will stop by during the Art Walk. The exhibition features the work of Jesus Aguilar, Salwa Aleryani, Firelei Baez, Princess Dennis, Pamela Dodds, Ayana Evans, Sunhee Jung, Sofia Perez, Surabhi Saraf, Clifford Tisdell, Cullen Washington Jr. (best in show), Arin Yoon and Greta Young.
The juror is Dean Daderko, who was recently appointed Curator of the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston (CAMH). He has taught and lectured at Yale University, Cooper Union, Centro de Investigaciones Artisticas and M.I.T.. Dean has curated shows around the world, and is the recipient of the 2008-09 Curatorial Research Fellowship from the French American Cultural Exchange. In his practice, he is dedicated to establishing productive opportunities for dialogue between art, artists and audiences.
