Catinca Tabacaru is pleased to announce the launch of her new brick and mortar gallery on the Lower East Side of New York City. The move represents the evolution of Tinca Art, the namesake curator and dealer’s four years as a private salon, dealer and curator. Nestled in the heart of the Lower East Side on Broome Street, the gallery features its original tin ceiling above 550 square feet of exhibition space. An eventual basement “shadow space” opening later in 2014 will feature an additional 550 square feet of space where artists and invited curators will stage exhibitions to complement those on the main floor.
Its debut exhibition It Begins on Paper, will feature a group show drawn from artists on the gallery’s roster and beyond, featuring exclusively, and examining the nature of works on paper: its status as the typical first medium employed by an artist, its fragility, its historic use for disseminating ideas and information. Selected works include two large watercolors by Patricia Cronin from a series inspired by Dante’s Inferno, in which human figures, made organic by the watercolor process, portray agony and ecstasy in purple and crimson washes. A rare hand drawing by Swoon - distinct from the cut-out wheat paste works she is know for, depicts a portrait of an elderly woman on brown paper. Justin Orvis Steimer, a young artist from the gallery roster, will present a suite of abstract works produced through a meditative process where the artist renders the energy surrounding him in a given moment.
