NEW YORK, NY.-
Helen Allen, Executive Director of PULSE Contemporary Art Fair
, announced today that PULSE New York is moving to a new location at 330 West Street, at the corner of the West Side Highway and West Houston Street. The new venue, a former New York Central Railroad freight train terminal housing five blocks of the original High Line, has 30-foot high ceilings with varying levels of lofted space to be used for special projects. The fifth edition of PULSE New York will take place March 4 through 7, 2010.
In an effort to constantly enhance the PULSE experience, we are excited to be moving to this new warehouse complex on the Hudson River, says Helen Allen. The new space will allow us to continue the tradition of incorporating our physical environment into the overall presentation of thought-provoking contemporary art.
Encompassing over 45,000 square feet of exhibition space for approximately 60 galleries, the Fairs new venue will allow exhibitors to present works and installations that draw upon the dramatic space. The layout of the Fair will maximize the warehouses large, open halls, high ceilings, and project space areas, creating a unique setting for this years tighter roster of cutting-edge galleries and special programming. Located across the West Side Highway from PULSEs former location at Pier 40, the new space is more conveniently situated for exhibitor and visitor access.
Acclaimed as one of the most internationally-diverse contemporary art fairs, PULSE New York will once again feature a dynamic mix of national and international exhibitors, including established and emerging galleries, as well as solo projects in the IMPULSE section of the Fair.
