NEW YORK, NY.- New York Gallery Week, a new
initiative organized collectively by 50 Manhattan-based contemporary art
galleries and 7 not for- profits – spanning Chelsea, SoHo, the Lower East
Side/Bowery, the Upper East Side, and 57th Street – will launch its pilot
program in May 2010. With a shared desire to refocus the art world’s
attention toward the city’s longstanding exceptional gallery programming, a
group of emerging and established galleries have come together with a mission to
put the spotlight back on the galleries and the artists.
