Most New Yorkers think of Times Square as a barren consumerist wasteland, but one incredible thing does happen there: by turning creators loose on the world’s most famous intersection, Times Square Arts turns it into a gigantic public platform for contemporary performance and visual arts. It’s one of the highest-profile public arts programs and has commissioned projects by Laurie Anderson, Björk, and JR, to name a few. Now, for the first time, it is exporting its collection. From September 17-25, Times Square Arts trades the Big Apple for Russia, in a collaboration with the Theatre of Nations in Moscow.
Galerie Lelong & Co. represents prominent contemporary artists and estates from the United States, Latin America, Europe, Asia, and Australia. This uniquely diverse group includes mid-career and established artists at the forefront of the international art world working across all media.
The gallery presents art that challenges viewers on multiple levels and diversifies dominant understandings of modern and contemporary art. While contemporary Latin American art has only recently begun to receive due recognition in the field, the gallery has been a key proponent of the region for decades, representing some of its most vital figures and presenting museum-quality exhibitions of their work. The gallery is proud to have represented Cildo Meireles, the Estate of Ana Mendieta, and Alfredo Jaar for over twenty years as well as the Estate of Hélio Oiticica for over a decade.
Galerie Lelong & Co. has also actively engaged in the cross-generational representation of women artists at a time when women continue to be underrepresented in the art world. Etel Adnan, Zilia Sánchez, and Carolee Schneemann have been exhibiting as early as the fifties or sixties, yet their impressive bodies of work and keen visual languages have just begun to be acknowledged. The gallery also supports several artists known for their socially engaged practices, such as Alfredo Jaar, Yoko Ono, Nancy Spero, and Krzysztof Wodiczko.
Contemporary sculpture is another strength of the gallery with artists such as Petah Coyne, Andy Goldsworthy, Jaume Plensa, and Ursula von Rydingsvard continually expanding the boundaries of three-dimensional expression. The gallery has a long history of working closely with prestigious museums and public institutions around the world to support the creation of new work, permanent public art projects, exhibitions both monographic and thematic, and publications on its artists.
Founded in Paris in 1981 by Daniel Lelong, Jacques Dupin, and Jean Frémon, the gallery in New York opened in 1985. Directed by Mary Sabbatino, Vice President and Partner, the gallery moved to its present ground-floor location in Chelsea in 2001. Galerie Lelong & Co. is a member of the Art Dealers’ Association of America, the most esteemed organisation of art galleries in the United States.
