NEW YORK, NY.- PULSE Contemporary Art Fair opens at its New York home, the Metropolitan Pavilion in Chelsea. Celebrating its 10th anniversary year, PULSE New York will continue the momentum established during its successful Miami Beach edition, which realized major sales and acclaim last season at its new mid-Miami Beach home. The tightly-curated fair, which is dedicated to cutting-edge contemporary art, will explore the theme of The Future through its immersive programming and special events.

PULSE New York will begin with its signature Private Preview Brunch on Thursday, March 5th from 10am to 1pm. The event serves as an exclusive first look for invited VIP guests and collectors. After the public opening from 1pm to 6pm, PULSE will host a Young Collector’s Cocktail presented by Perrier from 6pm to 8pm featuring a special performance by indie violin and viola duo Chargaux, a curator-led tour by Kristin Sancken and custom cocktails provided by Milagro.

A focused collection of 14 single-artist exhibitions will be presented featuring the following solo booths: Elisabeth Condon, Emerson Dorsch; Diana Copperwhite, 523 Gallery Thomas Jaeckel; Yevgeniy Fiks, Galerie Sator; Melissa Maddonni Haims, InLiquid; Ye Hongxing, ART LEXNG; Peter Kappa, PAC GALLERY; Osamu Koboyashi, Mindy Solomon Gallery; Moby, Emmanuel Fremin Gallery; Russell Nachman, LMAKprojects; Fabiano Parisi, CYNTHIA CORBETT GALLERY; Alyse Rosner, RICK WESTER FINE ART; Jonathan Wahl, Sienna Patti; Katsutoshi Yuasa, Yuki-Sis; and Zio Ziegler, ANTONIO COLOMBO ARTE CONTEMPORANEA which are all eligible for the PULSE Prize. The Prize, which is a cash award granted to an artist being exhibited in a solo booth, will be selected by a guest jury. The jurors are Lisa Erf, Director and Chief Curator of the JP Morgan Chase Art Collection; Sherry Dobbin, Director of Public Art, Times Square Alliance; Julie Baumgardner, art writer for New York Magazine; and Lisa Anastos, Art Collector and Philanthropist. The PULSE Prize winner will be announced on Saturday, March 7th.

Over a quarter of the fair will be comprised of two artist presentations offering visitors a chance to see a dual conversation of artworks. The relationships between these artists’ practices can be either confrontational or complementary and span a range of styles, media and subject creating dynamic interfaces in intimate spaces. Philip Bloom Gallery will exhibit Eli G. Halpern and Patrick Shoemaker who share a vivid use of ephemeral color tones, yet differ in their choices of surrealist versus abstract techniques. Lesley Heller Workspace will combine the sculptural installation work of Jim Osman who re-contextualizes objects, and Katherine Newbegin who photographs empty buildings exploring the cultural representations of their creators. Gallery LVS will present Tae-Jin Seong and Won-Kun Jun who incorporate a range of color in their work with contrasting approaches. gallery nine5 will present Jessica Lichtenstein who explores modern international reinterpretations of hyper-sexualized female depictions and Katherine Tzu-Lan Mann who bridges traditional Asian techniques with an investigation of her American environment. De Soto Gallery will exhibit Osamu Yokonami who explores the fragility of human nature juxtaposed with the idea of innocent collective identity through group portraiture, and Lauren Plageman whose photographic works oscillate between image and object, sculpture, landscape and still life.

The PROJECTS will include a large site-specific entryway installation by Rachel Mica Weiss presented by Uprise Art, monumental sculptures by Aaron T Stephan and Lauren Fensterstock presented by Sienna Patti, paintings by emerging London-based artist Danny Rolph presented by 523 Gallery Thomas Jaeckel, a video sculpture by Jonathan Calm, presented by LMAKprojects, and TRANSFER gallery will present two digital works, a large-scale digital print by Carla Gannis, and Jamie Zigelbaum’s PIXEL, an interactive electronic light installation activated by human touch.

PLAY, the dedicated showcase for video and new media, presented by Tumblr, is organized by guest curator Billy Zhao from the Marina Abramovic Institute. PLAY’s selections are focused on the fair’s theme of The Future and will be on view at the fair and on PULSE’s Tumblr site. The selected works for PLAY are Christina Benz, Pool (2005), 6 min 19 sec, CYNTHIA CORBETT GALLERY; Tom Pnini, Snow Demo (2010), 7 min 53 sec, Lesley Heller Workspace; Lilly McElroy, A Woman Runs Through A Pastoral Setting (2013), 56 sec, RICK WESTER FINE ART; and William Powhida, Exit Interview (2011), 6 min 48 sec, Gallery Poulsen.

PERSPECTIVES, the series of intimate in-depth conversations between prominent art world insiders, will include Miami’s Art Programs: fresh approaches in a unique city on Friday, March 6 at 6pm. This roundtable discussion will be moderated by Claire Breukel, a Miami-based writer and curator and will feature Brandi Reddick, Curator, Miami-Dade Art in Public Places and Carolyn Travis, Executive Director for Tourism, Bal Harbour Village. On Saturday March 7th at 2pm PULSE will host 10 x 10, a special curator-focused roundtable featuring ten curators from the New York area in a marathon session of idea exchange and insightful conversation about the art world and the future of curatorial practice. Participants include Matthew Israel, art historian, writer, Artsy Curator at Large and Director Emeritus for the Art Genome Project; Ryan Wong, arts writer, curator and Program Director at Asian American Writers’ Workshop and Rocio Aranda-Alvarado, Curator at El Museo del Barrio among others. Each featured speaker will have ten minutes to answer ten group-generated questions related to the theme of The Future. See the full list of participants here.
