Young Curators, New Ideas II

If you still haven’t come to a decision about what to do with your Thursday evening, take a look at Young Curators, New Ideas II, which will be showing at PPOW in Chelsea. Amani Olu organized the show in conjunction with PPOW Gallery. The group exhibition will focus on new voices in contemporary art through the perspective of seven New York based curators. I am interested to see how these curators experiment with the relationship between art and the physical space … will they do anything all that surprising? I’m counting on it. I was sold once I heard Amy Elkins was involved (I’m a huge fan of her work and of her participation in Women in Photography).

Come by and say hi to me and see what promises to be a great show!
