Curatorial Market, New York

Cuchifritos, September 7 – October 12, 2002
Private view Saturday September 7, 4-6 pm

Cuchifritos is proud to present Curatorial Market, a project organized by Swedish artist/curator Per Hüttner. The work in the exhibition will be displayed within the Essex St. Market and the Cuchifritos gallery. Moving the market into the gallery and the gallery into the surrounding market this project raises issues about the dissolving borders between artist and curator; art object and commodity; gallery, shop and market.
Curatorial Market is an experimental curatorial project, the fourth in the Curatorial Mutiny series; it brings together 11 internationally acclaimed artist/curators who challenge the boundaries between curation and artistic practice. Markets offer visual, olfactory, cultural and culinary temptations from all over the world. Curatorial Market offers a similar artistic smorgasbord where individual artistic projects overlap with curatorial endeavors to extend discussion on how consumer culture affects art and vice versa.

Curatorial Market is a collaboration between Per Hüttner and the following artists/curators: Claire Canning – Barnaby Drabble – Grady Gerbracht – Tone Hansen – Tone O Nielsen – Patrick Bernier – Cesare Pietroiusti – Max Presneill – Reid Shier – Gavin Wade.

Work on display by the following artists: Ross Sinclair, Giancarlo Norese, Scott Rigby, Richard Allalouf & Andy Cox, Arni Gudmundsson, Franco Angeloni, Marius Engh, Joan Jonas, Ellen Harvey, Ayreen Anastas, William Gerbracht, Mark Alan Stamaty, Joseph Krupczynski, Justin Spivey, Kevin Schmidt, Ludovic Burel, Marty Spellerberg, Claire Canning, Grady Gerbracht, Tone Hansen, Per Hüttner, Tone O Nielsen, Patrick Bernier, Cesare Pietroiusti, Max Presneill, Reid Shier, Gavin Wade, Måns Malmborg.
