Profile

This influential gallery (formerly of SoHo, now in a Rem Koolhaas-designed Chelsea space) puts on exhibitions for established contemporary artists such as Ross Bleckner and Gilbert & George, as well as their own roster of up-and-comers. One of their artists, Korean sculptor Do Ho Suh, debuted in the bare-plywood SoHo space (also a Koolhaas creation), covering the floor with countless plastic figurines, arms raised to hold up a continuous sheet of glass. Suh went on to exhibit an ethereal, ghostly multi-colored "house" in the Chelsea gallery, stitched out of a thin, kite-like fabric, down to the very fixtures in the "bathroom." Infamous British bad-girl Tracey Emin, another of the gallery's artists, exhibited her "My Bed" here, the artist’s own, thoroughly lived-in bed, littered with cigarettes, empty bottles of booze and condoms. And American Julian LaVerdiere, the artist behind the moving "Tribute in Light" at the World Trade Center site, installed a replica of one of the massive stone eagles mounted on the old Penn Station and set it to swing threateningly throughout the space to very dramatic effect.
