Ronald Sosinski and Ellen Donahue opened The Proposition on West 22nd Street in Chelsea in 2002. Re-opening as The Proposition, Donahue and Sosinski broadened the scope of the previous incarnation of the gallery by including international artists and new media installations, with an emphasis on emerging artists.
The Proposition eventually closed its doors in Chelsea in 2009 to relocate in Spring 2010 to Extra Place (the alley behind the historic CBGB’S), steps from the New Museum off of Bowery. In its new location, The Proposition will present a series of shows juxtaposing artists shown during its seven years in Chelsea with an exciting group of architecturally and sculptor based practitioners. We will also explore multi-media artists’ adventures into furniture making and other functional objects with the emphasis on line, process and surface.
