All though the New York art scene relocated to the Chelsea neighborhood all the way
back in the mid 90’s, it is in this particular moment in time that it has become the main city center for contemporary art. Chelsea is the home for over 350 galleries and institutions, featuring exhibitions by both emerging and established artists. Chelsea is THE place for art.
Not like the famous New York city Museums Chelsea has remained the designated area for the true art lovers often unnoticed by the cities many tourists. It might be due to the complicated navigation skills one has to master, or the confusing labyrinth of galleries that are both good and bad, maybe it’s the rapid changing pace
of the weekly and monthly shows.
There is no one way to define the contemporary art world, it is a full of contradictions and opposing forces, from market values to cultural theory.
Our goal would be to provide you with enough tools and context that even in the short time we spend together, you will feel that you have purchased a skill set to better understand the contemporary art world.
This is an excellent way to both learn about the fabulous gems in Chelsea and to experience the international world of culture.
