Finalists include: Cloud 9.0 (Sean Lyon); FRAME (Malte Harrif, Vitus Karsten Bjerre and Katrine Hoff); OPEN RESOURCE (Dennis Andersson, Mikkel Møller Roesdahl and Xan Browne); The Many Chairs Pavilion (Sofia Luna Steenholdt, Joachim Makholm Michelsen, Emil Bruun Meyer and Casper Phillip Ebbesen); Tight Knit (Jan Sienkiewicz and Uta Sienkiewicz)

The CHART Architecture competition, a key element of CHART SOCIAL, was launched in 2014 with the intention of promoting young Nordic architects and exploring the crossover between art, design and architecture. In 2018, CHART extended the call for applications to young and newly established architectural professionals, as well as students and recent graduates from the Nordic architecture schools. Five finalists were selected by this years judges and were chosen to design pavilions to house gastronomy partners and SPACE10 during CHART ART FAIR. The winner will be announced on September 1, 2018.

The 2018 concept is OPEN-SOURCE and challenges participants to unfold the potential of open-source content through modular design and cross collaborations, creating a platform for aesthetic experimentation and reusable design. In this collaboration CHART wants to underline the significant relationship existing between art and architecture, suggesting participants to design pavilions closely with artists as an integrated part of their team. Collaborations can be presented as initial ideas and then integrated in the further development of the pavilion.

This year the CHART Architecture competition is judged by Bjarke Ingels, architect and founder of BIG Bjarke Ingels Group; Beatrice Galilee, Curator of Architecture and Design at The Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art; Ben Clement and Sebastian De La Cour (benandsebastian), Artist-duo; Simon Frommenwiler, architect and co-founder of HHF Architects; Susanne Ottesen, Owner of Galleri Susanne Ottesen and Co-Founder of CHART; Thomas Lommeé, Founder and Partner of OpenStructure and Infrastructure.

The winners of this year’s competition will be offered a mentorship program with the aim to stimulate and support young architects’ careers. This competition will promote networking as well as promoting cross-sector collaboration amongst professionals.

CHART Architecture is made possible by the generous support of Realdania, a social enterprise, whose mission is to improve the quality of life through the built environment; The City of Copenhagen, The Danish Arts Foundation, FOSS and The Dreyer Foundation.

ALEX KATZ: CUT OUTS

March 8 – April 14, 2018 at 515 West 27th Street

Paul Kasmin Gallery is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of “Cut Outs” sculpture editioned by Alex Katz. “Cut Outs” demonstrates the artist’s ongoing investigation into the properties of visual perception and the brilliance of surface as represented and rendered in the human figure. Since the 1950s, this dedication to figurative realism—informed by the scale and power of Abstract Expressionism and utilizing the graphic language of advertising that anticipated Pop—has marked Katz as one of the most inventive and technically achieved artists of the twentieth and twenty-first century.

ROBERT POLIDORI: FRA ANGELICO / OPUS OPERANTUS

Paul Kasmin Gallery is pleased to announce the debut presentation of a selection of Robert Polidori’s large-scale color photographs of the frescoes of Fra Angelico (1395-1455) contained in the Dominican priory of San Marco in Florence. In the canon of art history, these works, executed in the birthplace of the Renaissance, give us a full sense of the period’s renewed commitment to the life of the spirit. Polidori visited the Convento di San Marco numerous times over the course of 2010 to capture the solemnity and sheer force of the frescoes and their reflection, through the depiction of the life of Christ, of the universal condition of mankind.
