NEW YORK, NY.- Marlborough Chelsea
announced the appointment of Pascal Spengemann as Director.
Were very excited to welcome Pascal Spengemann to the Marlborough Chelsea team, said gallery principal Max Levai. As we put our 2013 schedule in place, his proven ability to cultivate an exciting and curatorially rigorous gallery program will play an integral role in the development of our growing roster of artists.
I'm excited to join an organization with not only a storied history, but an eye on the future and the potential of contemporary practice, said Spengemann. I hope to help Marlborough to foster an atmosphere of experimentation melded with broad appeal.
Spengemann comes to Marlborough from Taxter & Spengemann, the Chelsea gallery he both co-owned and directed for over nine years. Prior to founding Taxter & Spengemann, he served as Chief Curator at the Firehouse Center for Visual Arts in Burlington, Vermont, curating and producing over 50 major public exhibitions. Spengemanns curatorial history includes collaborations with such artists as A.L. Steiner, Matt Johnson, Albert York, Kalup Linzy, Daniel Lefcourt, Andrew Kuo, Frank Benson, among many others. He has guest lectured, critiqued and curated at various universities including School of Visual Arts, Tufts University, University of Vermont, Dartmouth College, Cranbrook Academy of Art and Bloomfield Hills. Spengemann holds a MA from the Bard Center of Curatorial Studies.
