The art world descends on New York in early May for Frieze New York on Randall’s Island and several satellite art fairs, including two on the Lower East Side. One of those fairs, Cutlog, announced its exhibiting galleries and curated projects yesterday. After four years in France, Cutlog is expanding to the U.S. with a May 10-13 debut at the Clemente Soto Velez Cultural Center (CSV).
About 40 galleries from around the world will be taking part, as well as other curators and partners who will present a diverse mix of art, installations, performances, publications, talks, and films. Cutlog is also transforming the 13,000 square foot parking lot at CSV into a lively space for large-scale sculptures, music, films, and food tastings. “Après Cutlog” will take place each evening from 8 p.m.-2 a.m. and will include a “new commission, ‘The Nightclub,'” encompassing “performances, live music and DJ performances.”
Several Lower East Side galleries are Cutlog participants, including White Box, located at 329 Broome St; The Hole, 312 Bowery; and one of the neighborhood’s newest art spaces, Rox Gallery, 86 Delancey St. Among the highlights: Russia–based street artist Timofey Radya’s “Stability: Figure #1,” a collection of 26 stacked anti-riot shields meant as a commentary on the 2011 political protests in Moscow. See below for a complete list of galleries and curators, and click through for more details about Cutlog. We interviewed Guy Reziciner, the fair’s co-director, yesterday for our May print magazine. Look for more details about Cutlog soon, as well as information about NADA, which is being staged at Basketball City on Pier 36 during the same week.
