One Night Stand

Real estate is a limited and valuable resource in New York City, such that some curators have turned to one-day only exhibitions in order to make use of fly-by-night spaces. Recently curator Nicholas Weist staged the group exhibition (and dance party!) If I told you you were beautiful, would you date me on the regular? in Oliver Kamm/5BE the evening before the gallery's move, and the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council's Swing Space has long worked with the community to open up short-term properties to artists. Tonight curators Hanne Mugaas and Fabienne Stephan will transform the make-up room of a photographer's studio into an exhibition space for an international group of artists. Part of their ongoing project-based gallery Galerie Art Since the Summer of '69, the ten artists selected by Mugaas and Stephan work in a variety of mediums, such as sculpture, drawing, painting and new media. Highlights include a tangible version of Charles Broskoski's "New Flag" (2008), a computer-based work by Johannes P. Osterhoff, and new sculptures and paintings by Ida Ekblad, Anders Nordby and Lina Viste Gronli of Willy Wonka Inc. - Ceci Moss
