Art Out: Julie Saul's Nineteen Years at 535
Images by Jeremy Brugo
This summer Julie Saul Gallery will complete nineteen years in Chelsea at 535 West 22nd Street; we are losing our lease. In recognition of our almost two decades here, we have organized an exhibition for which we have chosen nineteen works: one from each year of our tenure from 2000 to 2019.
The new millennium began with great optimism. We got past the fear of a Y2K breakdown, only to be meet with the events of September 11th the next year. It has been a roller coaster since then, and the programming of the gallery has reflected the shifts between good and bad in a global context. Our selection process has been shaped by the aesthetics, emotion and intuition that reflect both our collective culture and our personal passions.
The program has resonated with so many ideas we would be hard pressed to describe a unifying theme. Although we have mostly shown photography, we have also ranged into sculpture, video, ceramics and painting. Some of the artists in the show have been with the gallery since the earliest days (Andrew Bush, Sally Gall, Arne Svenson); others have arrived in recent years (Adam Magyar and Andrea Grützner). The artists have befriended one another, and together we have worked hard to promote their work and our shared values. Since it is impossible for us to hang works by all the artists we have shown in our nineteen years at 535, we hope that visitors will be tempted to browse our website where all of the exhibitions and artists are documented with images, texts and links going back to the founding of the gallery in 1986.
