announce they are relocating to 535 West 22nd Street. The spacious new gallery opens on January 15, 2011. The move to a dynamic new location in Chelsea provides DC Moore with the opportunity to expand its ongoing program of concurrently presenting contemporary and 20th century exhibitions. The new space designed by Andrew Ong features two exhibition galleries, including an expansive area with high ceilings that can accommodate large-scale works and a smaller room designed for intimate viewing of paintings and works on paper.
Our inaugural exhibitions, Robert Kushner: Wildflower Convocation and Romare Bearden: Idea to Realization, will be on view from February 3 to March 12, with an opening celebration Thursday, February 3. The Kushner exhibition will include new painting and his remarkable drawing installation, Scriptorium, which has just returned from exhibitions at the Blanton Museum of ARt, University of Texas at Austin, and the Kunshallen Brandts in Odense, Denmark. The Bearden show will feature a rare and vibrant group of collages, original artworks that were created as maquettes for a wide range of projects, from book jackets to large-scale murals and mosaics.
