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 long-standing 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.

At its core, New York Gallery Week (NYGW) 2010 is a presentation of over 50 solo gallery exhibitions, along with an unprecedented concentration of scores of free events and programs, the majority taking place inside the galleries themselves. With NYGW's members organizing themselves to offer this ambitious, simultaneous programming, NYGW offers unique access to a wide range of special gallery-produced artistic experiences in one concentrated period of time.

Solo exhibitions recognize and celebrate that singular moment in time when an individual artist's vision is cohesively presented in one gallery space, prior to when the works are sold and redistributed to collectors, museums, and elsewhere. By showcasing 50 major solo exhibitions, NYGW encourages visitors to frequent these shows multiple times throughout the weekend, for various viewings and different perspectives.

Complementing these exhibitions will be intimate, informal talks by artists; guided gallery tours by artists, curators, art historians, gallery staff; panel discussions; film screenings; book signings; performances; special artist receptions; and more – which are all free and open to the public.

The inaugural year's NYGW is actually a long weekend (kicking off on Friday, May 7 and ending on the evening of Monday May, 10). Galleries are normally closed Sundays and Mondays, yet NYGW's participants will be open throughout the weekend with extended hours. NYGW will become an annual event, and expand to a full week in future years.

Schedule for the 2010 Event:

Friday May 7th: Galleries have normal business hours. Several special events are scheduled.

Saturday May 8th: Galleries will be open 10a.m. – 6p.m. with special free programming throughout the day. All NYGW Chelsea & Uptown galleries host receptions for solo exhibitions with special extended hours 6-8 p.m.

Sunday May 9th: Galleries will be open 11a.m. – 6p.m. with special free programming throughout the day. All NYGW Bowery, Lower East Side, SoHo, & West Village galleries host receptions for solo exhibitions with special extended hours 6-8 p.m.

Monday May 10th: Galleries will be open 11a.m. – 6p.m.

*For a complete listing of all special programmed events, please visit the New York Gallery Week website. A NYGW app is also available on iTunes.

Started by Casey Kaplan, the founding committee members of NYGW include Jane Hait of Wallspace, Anton Kern, Friedrich Petzel, Jason Murison of Friedrich Petzel, Andrew Richards of Marian Goodman Gallery, Pascal Spengemann and Kelly Taxter of Taxter & Spengemann, David Zwirner, Angela Choon and Julia Joern of David Zwirner.
