Second Annual Event Takes Place MAY 6-8, 2011 with special support for the Whitney Museum Of American Art
New York Gallery Week is pleased to announce its second annual event, scheduled from Friday, May 6 to Sunday, May 8, 2011.
Following 2010’s highly successful kick-off year, this year’s NYGW has expanded with the participation of 60 contemporary art galleries and not-for-profit spaces. And once again, complementing the 60 solo exhibitions will be scores of free events and programs, such as guided gallery tours by artists, curators, art historians; panel discussion; film screenings; performances; special artist receptions; book signings; and more.
This year’s NYGW will benefit the Whitney Museum. In conjunction with NYGW, members of the museum’s curatorial staff will participate in select programs throughout the weekend; and the weekend will culminate with NYGW’s own gala (Saturday, May 7) held at the Museum.
