The Julie Saul Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition and catalogue celebrating 25 years as a public gallery in New York City. The show, "25 Years/25 Artists", features one artist shown during each year of the gallery's exhibition history, from 1986 through 2010.
About the show
"25 Years/25 Artists" provides a glimpse into the evolving history and program of the Julie Saul Gallery, while celebrating the artists, collectors, critics, curators, dealers and friends who have made it all happen over the last quarter-century.
The force behind the exhibition and accompanying catalogue is Saul's friend and colleague, art historian Bonnie Yochelson. She has collaborated on the selection of works and written a biographical essay about Saul for the catalogue. The publication will also include an illustrated history of the twenty-five year exhibition program and plates of the works in the show.
In addition to the many solo shows highlighted in "25 Years/25 Artists", the catalogue will feature illustrations from a number of group shows organized by colleagues including "A Visible Order" (1986) Paul Laster and Renee Riccardo, "Photomontage in Spain 1930/1980" (1987) Marta Gili, Director of the Jeu de Paume, "Foreign Ferns: Botanical Studies from Talbot to the Present" (1994) co-curated with Mia Fineman, and "Contructing Images: Synapse between Photography and Sculpture"(1991) and "Richard Artschwager: Photo/Works 1945-1996" (1996) both curated by Ingrid Schaffner, Senior Curator at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia.
Together with founding partner Nancy Lieberman, the gallery opened on Spring Street in May 1986 and reopened in 1993 at 560 Broadway as the Julie Saul Gallery. We have resided at 535 West 22nd Street in Chelsea since 2000.
