CARRIAGE TRADE BENEFIT AUCTION
carriage trade is an artist-run, non-profit exhibition space at 62 Walker Street in lower Manhattan which aims to present culturally relevant programming that reflects present social conditions. Combining the non-commercial mission of a non-profit with the scale and programming flexibility of a small gallery, the exhibitions also incorporate the historical scope of a museum by often placing historical artwork in dialogue with the work of contemporary artists. Carriage trade's projects (see below) have been featured in Frieze, The New Yorker, The Huffington Post, The New York Observer, Time Magazine, The Village Voice, among other publications.
In addition to the Benefit Auction, the gallery is also organizing a benefit raffle to help support upcoming programming. Artworks from fifty-two artists will be on view at carriage trade and raffled-off on Tuesday, January 29 from 6-10 pm. A ticket for the raffle ($225) guarantees an artwork.

Some of carriage trade's projects include Jef Geys Woodward Avenue, a variation of Geys’ Quadra Medicinale, at the Belgian Pavilion of the 53rd Venice Biennale, which was first developed at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit and brought to New York by carriage trade, an exhibition of works by pseudonymous monochrome painter Henry Codax, Color Photographs from the New Deal (1939 - 1943), a show of over 70 color photographs from the Library of Congress archives taken during the late depression period and up to WW II, some of which were selected for the current White Columns Annual organized by Richard Birkett, and the most recent exhibition Family Portrait, with Art Club 2000, Olaf Breuning, Louise Bourgeois, Carol Irving, Mathias Kessler, Servane Mary, Claus Oldenburg and others, which addresses how the family’s image has been constructed and maintained over time, and the ways this might influence the shaping of the political and social spheres of everyday life.

She frequently works with unusual surfaces such as Astroturf, sandpaper, vinyl, or carpet to exploit the implicit references and the textural possibilities these materials offer. Solo exhibitions of her work have been shown at The Whitney Museum of American Art at Philip Morris, Creative Time, and The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Major museums including The Museum of Modern Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Whitney Museum, The Brooklyn Museum, and The Art Institute of Chicago own her artworks. Most recently she has completed a mosaic for MTA in the 42nd street station.
