@ museum of the city of new york, 1220 fifth avenue at 103rd street, nyc 10029
new york is defined by its vibrant art scene, but it can be hard to find a place in the competitive and market-driven world of for-profit galleries. since the middle of the 20th century, new york artists outside of the commercial mainstream have worked together to create alternative spaces to show their work and have enriched the city in the process. join eminent art critic irving sandler as he moderates a conversation about the past, present, and future of artist-run spaces, with: artist lois dodd, a founding member of the 1950s tanager gallery, one of the first artist-run galleries in new york; artist lynda caspe, a founding member and the director of the bowery gallery, the first of the coop galleries of the late 1960s and early 1970s; artist daria dorosh, a founding member of a.i.r. gallery, the first artist-run, not-for-profit gallery for women artists in the country; and artist, critic, and curator phong bui, editor and publisher of the brooklyn rail and observer of the contemporary new york art scene.
