Catinca Tabacaru Gallery
10002 New York
Catinca Tabacaru Gallery opened its brick and mortar space on the Lower East Side of Manhattan in May 2014. Interested in authenticity, a universal language and the geopolitical environment, the themes of gender, spirituality and time run deep through the gallery’s program. In its first two years, the Gallery focused on mounting first solo exhibitions for its roster artists, contextualizing its artists within contemporary and historical work, and presenting international artists who have not previously shown in the USA despite thriving international carers.
The Gallery expands past the walls of its permanent space. In the summer of 2015, it created CTG(R), a traveling Art Residency with a first installment in Harare, Zimbabwe. Results have included a NYC gallery exhibition, a museum exhibition at the National Gallery of Zimbabwe, a new Zimbabwean roster artist, and upcoming Special Project Presentations at both Art Toronto and Also Known As Africa in Paris. The second installment of CTG(R) will take place this August 2016 in Newfoundland, Canada where Gallery artists will work on a series collectively titled "A Project For The Wind." The Residency is now evolving parallel to the Gallery's space-driven program.
