Chelsea, Meatpacking District
New York has long been recognized as the premiere center for the arts in America and is considered by many to be the commercial center of the art market worldwide as well. Increasingly the hip galleries in the Chelsea neighborhood are becoming a locus of this activity; and so this is where our introductory walk to the art scene in New York takes place.
In the company of our Context docent, a seasoned professional in this area (either an artist, or a critic, and usually both), we will explore the tremendously diverse scene in Chelsea, which is home to a number of blue chip titans like Mary Boone and Matthew Marks as well as to promising younger gallery owners like Zach Feuer and Oliver Kamm.
